“When you eat with someone, you can’t betray them” – Arab saying
Conflict Café (formerly Conflict Kitchen London) is an innovative pop-up culinary experience that champions the idea of peace through food.
Serving authentic dishes from areas that have experienced conflict around the world, Conflict Café aims to provide spaces in our city that stimulate curiosity and conversations about these regions, and to demonstrate the power of food to break down barriers and foster dialogue and understanding.
Named Time Out London’s ‘Most Inspirational Pop-up of 2014’, last year Conflict Café focused on the food of Myanmar, Peru and Jordan, with both emerging and established chefs (such as Yotam Ottolenghi) donating recipes and expertise to make it a great success.
This year, we will partner with even more international chefs to celebrate the UN International Day of Peace (21 September) and get more Londoners ‘breaking bread’ and talking peace through Syrian, Middle Eastern, Nepali, Colombian, and Armenian and Turkish food.
