New Women’s Food Enterprise – Soft Launch and Free Food Tasting. Wednesday 16th October 12:30 – 3PM
Join us at Limehouse Old Town Hall for a big dawat (family feast) and the soft launch of DESHI SHAD, an exciting new Food Enterprise project by Stitches in Time working with unemployed women residents from the Bangladeshi community in Tower Hamlets.
We will be cooking dishes from our catering, supper club, and street food menus for you to taste in the company of project members of Deshi Shad (the name, chosen by the group, means ‘taste of Bangladesh’).
Inspired by the wealth of knowledge and skills in kitchens and households across the borough, the project brings together 30 talented local chefs with women professionals from the food industry in a series of workshops and food events. The project aims to build confidence, self-belief, and recognition in and for the Bengali community, while creating business opportunities for local women and aspiring food entrepreneurs, culminating in the first women run pop-up curry house on Brick Lane!
Come discover the secrets of traditional Bengali cooking and share your feedback. Your valuable input will help shape the future of DESHI SHAD!
Everyone is welcome but please try to RSVP.
We look forward to seeing you all
