Refugee chef dinner banquet

King St
Newtown NSW 2042
Parliament on King

Wednesday 28 September from 6:30pm to 8:30pm Wednesday 19 October from 6:30pm to 8:30pm Wednesday 2 November from 6:30pm to 8:30pm Wednesday 30 November from 6:30pm to 8:30pm

Join a small group and enjoy a tasty 2 or 3-course banquet at bohemian cafe Parliament on King.

You’ll sample food from the homelands of asylum seekers and refugees (think Burmese/Rohingya, Iraqi, Iranian, Palestinean, Nepali, Sri Lankan, Ugandan and more).

Each dinner banquet has a different chef and menu, and we often keep it a surprise until the night. Your hosts will invite the chefs to share their stories, and you’re more than welcome to ask them questions about the food they’ve prepared and their stories of how they have come to Australia.

The dinner is hosted in the cosy front room of Parliament on King. Parliament on King’s mission is simple: to make lovely food. But in doing this they address the barriers to economic, social and cultural participation asylum seekers, refugees and recent arrivals to Australia face, by providing real work, training and community.

All proceeds from this event go towards funding Parliament on King’s important work.

What we provide:

  • 2 to 3 course meal (dependant on the menu)

  • A welcome drink (wine, beer, soft drink or juice)

  • Exclusive use of an intimate venue

  • Licensed venue with a range of alcohol and drinks available for purchase

  • Photos and further resources shared after the experience
