A film from Faith & Co
You may be familiar with Migrateful, a charity that facilitates cookery classes with chefs from all corners of the globe, from Eritrea to the Philippines to Iran and Cuba. It provides a solution for the isolation refugees can often face upon arriving in the UK.
There is another model which helps refugees who have cooking skills. A restaurant called Feast, a World Kitchen, has been set up which allows refugee chefs to have a pop-up kitchen for a day a week and cook the food from their country. They publish their menus for the 4 days of the week and customers order for take-away at the time they want. The chefs keep the proceeds and pay a below market rate for the kitchen hire. It helps them develop their cooking skills, prove the commercial success of their menus, create income and build confidence to open their own restaurant.
Perhaps a model for others to try?
