The World Food Café is a monthly event that W.O.M.E.N supports and is open to all women in Iceland.
This monthly event started several years ago as a way to bring women from different cultures together and to learn about different ethnic cuisines and share a lovely evening enjoying good food and good conversation.
The World Food Café started with guest participation where guests would learn about the food being prepared while helping to prepare the meal by cutting vegetables or adding ingredients to the dish, but now as this was very time consuming we do it quite differently. Now women volunteer their time for one evening to share the cuisine from their home country, usually they have help cooking as it is a lot of work.
The evening starts with the chef and their cuisine being introduced, after which they share a short story about the dishes and what they mean to their countrymen.
We also welcome chefs to bring music and decorations from their home land.
Guests get to enjoy a lovely meal, good company and hopefully learn something new about their host chef’s favourite cuisine from their homeland.
The evening is the most popular of our events. This event is held the first Thursday of every month from September to June. If you would like more information or would like to volunteer to cook please contact Nura@womeniniceland.is
