Mageiros Pop-Up was born from a course at Coexist Community kitchen called ESOL for health – Cooking & Conversation which brings together people from different cultures, sharing traditional food, learning English, and supporting people’s integration into our local community.
We use our sessions as a way of bringing people together from different countries and different walks of life; working with various organisations to create networks of collaboration and support.
We believe that cooking is something which can help us rediscover and connect with our past as well as something which can transport us creatively through experimentation and taste. Cooking can be so much more than just an instrument to feed us. It is about the people living it and what it means to them.
Throughout the course some of the group’s members expressed their interest in sharing this on a large scale and this is how Mageiros Pop-up came about.
We will start the journey presenting traditional dishes from Pakistan and will subsequently visit a different region from around the world.
Come and join our Pakistan feast on Thursday 23rd of November at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.
Mageiros: In ancient Greece, the word for cook, butcher, and priest was the same; mageiros- the word shares an etymological root with “magic.” Even the most ordinary dish follows a satisfying arc of transformation; magically becoming more than the sum of its ordinary parts, and in almost every dish, you can find, besides the culinary ingredients, the ingredients of a story!
