WOMEN’S COOKING PROJECT – KEREN RUBENSTEIN – ISRAELI KITCHEN

Join us on Friday, 29th of November, from 19:00 on at Westside Slotermeer, Burgemeester de Vlugtlaan 125, Amsterdam.

Keren Rubenstein from Keren’s Kitchenโ€‹ is the chef of this edition. Keren’s kitchen is at the core of the Israeli cuisine with strong Palestinian and Arabic influences. Pure and fresh ingredients, fresh cooking and outspoken flavors is what makes her cooking so Israeli.

For the last 3 years Keren has been leading the successful facebook group Amsterdam Cooksโ€‹ where thousands of home cooks and professional cooks are coming together and create food experiences. The remarkable thing about the group is the high amount of women that present their culinary skills and share their passion.

Keren is the first person we thought of when we started this project. She is the most amazing chef that you still don’t know of. If only for her, it was worth starting this project.

Women are underrepresented in the mainstream food scene. The majority of chefs, food writers and food personalities are men. We would like to provide a platform for women to highlight their talent as chefs and home cooks. In addition, aim to expose the public to the unique opportunity of tasting these womenโ€™s culinary wonders and hear their story.

You will get the chance to taste the miraculous foods of chefs, home cooks, refugees, mothers, grandmothers, stars of the culinary scene and experimental food designers. Powering each dinner is a woman with her own story, her own kitchen, her own voice.

All our menus are vegan and sugar free.
During the event we will host live musicians.

The menu: 25 euros (all courses included)
