Go Here: The Conflict Cafe Pop UpBy Claudine Levy
What: After being voted Time Out’s ‘Most Inspirational Pop-up of 2014’, Conflict Café is back. Peacebuilding charity International Alert returns with its Conflict Café to encourage conversations about co-existence over food. Each week the café’s cuisine will be from a different corner of the world, and will be used as a delicious jumping off point from which guests can debate conflict and the future of peace in each country.
Why: What better way to resolve conflict than by breaking bread? As the nights are drawing in and the rain stakes its claim over London, Conflict Café is the perfect place to seek refuge. Taking place in the edgy House of VANS underground vaults, each event fully immerses you in a distinct culture.
Who: The pop-up peace event started with the Middle East, kicking off with a Syrian dinner and a brunch by Honey & Co, and will move onto a Nepali feast this weekend. We’re most excited by the event that’ll showcase Columbian cuisine, which will be serving a traditional stew of red snapper, swordfish, prawns, mussels and coconut milk. Drool.
The residency will wrap up with celebrated Turkish chefs collaborating with Armenian cook Natalie Griffith. Catch this while it lasts, it’s a truly special thing.
All proceeds go to International Alerts’ peace building activities internationally. Get your tickets here: www.grubclub.com/conflict-cafe
