The World Food Cafe is a monthly event supported by W.O.M.E.N.  The event 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 Cafe 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 receive help cooking the meal. The evening starts with the chef introducing the dishes, followed by them sharing a short story or some information about the cuisine and what is means to their countrymen. We also welcome chefs to bring music and decorations from their homeland. Guests enjoy a lovely meal, good company and hopefully learn something new about their host chef’s favorite cuisine from their homeland.

The evening is the most popular of our events.

World Food Cafe is held the first Thursday of every month from September to June.
