About this Event
On August 4th, a massive explosion ravaged our hometown of Beirut, Lebanon. The explosion, a result of years of political corruption, sent a shock wave through the heart of residential areas and the city’s most creative neighborhoods. More than two months after the deadly explosion, no justice has been served, leaving 52 people still missing, 190 dead, 6000 injured, and more than 300,000 left homeless.
In light of this devastating event, we are rolling up our sleeves to fundraise for Beirut. Inspired by our family dinners by the Mediterranean sea, we’ve decided to share our culinary memories with you. From our table to yours, with love.
On November 1st, join us for a curated dining experience for Beirut. Kick off your Sunday evening with a virtual cooking class, alongside chefs Karim from @cooktabra and Cameo from @allorapasta. After the lesson, we invite you to stay for dinner and enjoy an evening of curated live music. The cooking lesson will take place 6-8 and dinner and music will be 8-9pm.
If you feel so inclined, please extend your donation by adding extra funds to the donation line at checkout. Thank you!!
What you will make: grilled pistachio kafta, parsley tabbouleh, and homemade hummus. Please email us in advance, if you have any dietary restrictions we need to be made aware of.
