Project

Bread and Stories

Diverse together – sharing bread and stories is a partner project of Bread Houses Network and Multi Kulti Collective as part of which the citizens of Plovdiv, Varna and Sofia will rediscover the cultural diversity of their cities. Between March and June 2019 each of the three biggest Bulgarian cities will host three open culinary events. During the events foreign chefs will not only present recipes for bread and pastry products but will also share their Bulgarian story – what brought them to Bulgaria and what motivated them to stay here. While revealing why they chose to live here and what attracts them to this country, the chefs will share funny stories of being a foreigner in “our world” as well as what are the challenges they need to face. Each event will be open for 30 participants, who’ll follow the recipes of the chefs to prepare the dishes and will be actively engaged in the discovery of their stories and cultures. One third of the participants will be from unprivileged groups and the entrance for them will be free.

Time frame: February – July 2019
Partners: Bread Houses Network (leading partner), Multi Kulti Collective
Funding: Plovdiv 2019
