Global Kitchen is an initiative run in collaboration between ArtReach and Soft Touch Arts, both organisations are registered charities specialising in working with disadvantaged communities and supporting health and well-being through creativity of all types.
Global Kitchen will have 3 strands of activity.
1) Refugee and asylum seeker individuals who would like to share their home country recipes will participate in a series of training workshops, alongside a professional chef, in order to learn how to cook in a professional kitchen and how to adapt their recipes to cater for large numbers of people.
2) Participatory meals (free of charge). An opportunity for members of the local community to come and take part / watch the preparation of the food and then sit down (along with the chefs) to share the food prepared - each dish from a different country!
3) The development and production of a Global Kitchen recipe book containing all project recipes, interesting stories and images.
