Heart & Parcel Bangladeshi Supper Club
Mon 13 March 2017, 19:00 – 22:00 GMT
Heart & Parcel is proud to be bringing the best of Bangladeshi home-cooked food to local community centre and cafe, Levenshulme Inspire. At Heart & Parcel we are all about tapping into the existing resources and talents that migrant communities bring with them to Britain, yet remain hidden and unused in local areas.
Levenshulme is home to a large and established Bangladeshi community. The women we meet at our sessions are extremely proud of their home-cooked dishes, yet there are few restaurants in the area that serve traditional food from Bangladesh. When they do, they tend to conflate Indian and Pakistani food with this hidden gem of a cuisine.
This month's supper club continues within our series of events hosted by our ESOL learners. This March we are handing over the kitchen to Sweety, Monira & Bibi, three of our Bangladeshi learners and good friends. These ladies met each other in Spain where they lived and worked prior to coming to Manchester. They are not related but act like sisters at our events and classes, laughing, chatting and having fun with cooking and learning English. Last year Bibi and Monira introduced Levenshulme to Bangladeshi dumplings at Levenshulme Market. We felt like it was time to let the ladies take charge of our events to show us just how it is done.
Our generous set menu of five courses is available here, offering our veggie option too. Your evening will include a special selection of home-cooked traditional Bangladeshi dishes, salads, sweets, many of which have been and taught by Monira, Bibi & Sweety during our open food workshops with the public.
Your ticket not only pays for ALL of these treats above, but you will also be contributing to our ongoing community projects, where we bring women from migrant communities together by making dumplings and developing ESOL skills.
We have just one sitting of 7:00pm so tickets will be limited. Levenshulme Inspire's bar will be open serving you wines, beers, and spirits & hot drinks to go with your meal.
Come and join us for this unique evening to discover a delicious cuisine that is right on your doorstep!
