Event description

Description

Scotland is home to more than 80,000 Muslims, drawing their heritage from a diverse range of cultures and traditions.

Back by popular demand and as part of the 2017/18 Winter Festivals, the Alwaleed Centre at the University of Edinburgh is hosting a special Food Fair designed to reflect and celebrate the diverse Islamic culinary cultures that have made their home here in Scotland.

This free event will be an opportunity to explore and celebrate differences, appreciate similarities, and enjoy some
delicious home-cooked food! To compliment the food, there will also be live music and henna painting to enjoy.

Drawing inspiration from Burns Night, this event will be a chance to celebrate our diverse identities through sharing
food - a halal haggis will even be making an appearance!

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

The success of our 2016 and 2017 events was entirely due to the wonderful home-cooks who came forward to prepare and share a dish. Do you have a favourite dish which reflects your cultural heritage? We're looking for volunteers to cook dishes and bring them along to share. We have grants available to buy all the ingredients you need.
If you would like to cook a dish, please contact Lilly Jenkins at the Alwaleed Centre: thealwaleedcentre@ed.ac.uk or
alternatively phone on 0131 650 4165.

Funded by BEMIS Scotland via Scotland's Winter Festivals - a partnership between BEMIS Scotland and
the Scottish Government to facilitate diverse, multicultural celebrations.
