About this Event

Nothing beats a home-cooked meal shared with family! And this is what inspires our Family Style Cookery Classes, a fun, laid-back homestyle cooking experience. Here, you will learn to prepare different dishes and then enjoy them with people who, like you, fuel our mission of supporting refugee and migrant chefs on their journey to integration. It’s a cookery class with a conscience, like they say!

Your class will be led by our wonderful Chef Amna from Palestine at the in Clerkenwell, London.

At our Family Style Cookery Classes, you will be grouped with other participants and prepare dishes together as a team. Think of Chef Amna as the head of the family! She will take care of dividing the class into groups, and each group will be responsible for creating one of the dishes. Of course, you are welcome and encouraged to move around during the class to learn about the other dishes being prepared. Throughout the evening, Chef Amna will share stories about their food and culture, and explain how to prepare each of the dishes so you come away with some new cooking tricks and inspiration from Palestine. You will also be emailed the recipes after the class.

A message from our Chef Amna:

“My name is Amna from Gaza, Palestine and I came to the UK in the winter of 2022. In Gaza, I was a university lecturer in psychology for 20 years and a director of a charity supporting mothers and children. I have 5 children: 2 daughters who still live in Gaza, a son and daughter in Canada and a son in London.

As a young woman, I lived in Libya. I married there, brought up my children and achieved my degree and my Masters. Libya’s sky seemed open to my dreams and I was very happy there.

When I first arrived in the UK, I had nothing here and felt lonely and ashamed. I am thankful to have become part of the Migrateful family. Migrateful has helped me feel more positive and I am happy to share my food and my culture.

When I cook I always think of my mother. I don’t use recipes but cook by a sense I inherited from her. My mother and father always talked about their life before Gaza - I have never been to their home in Ashdod but I feel I know it. My father caught fish, and they always had fresh vegetables from the countryside. I am passionate about making healthy and nutritious food. It is so important for our lives and our physical and mental health. The process of cooking lifts me, especially when I do it with others - and people are always appreciative when I offer them my food!”
