Multi Kulti Kitchen is where Bulgarian taste buds meet the gastronomic delights of the world. Our hosts from Asia, Europe, North and South America and Africa, both refugees and migrants, let you in the lives they left behind and the recipes they took with them. It is a deep immersion into unknown culinary and artistic territory and a pleasant challenge to the senses. Content varies by event but presentations, games, musical performances, dances, film screenings and all sorts of workshops are all known to happen. We are told that many friendships and partnerships are made at the Multi Kulti Kitchen events. Evidently, to paraphrase a well-known saying, familiarity and acceptance pass through the stomach. And eyes. And ears.
This informal platform is our flagship in supporting integration of all newcomers into Bulgarian society. Since our maiden voyage in Sofia in early 2011 we have learned as much of other cultures as of our own. We have been adapting and evolving and our efforts have paid off: ours was featured as a “good practice” by the European Commission.
In 2015 Multi Kulti Kitchen grew as a social franchise and NGOs from the 7 biggest Bulgarian cities were selected, trained, funded and mentored to start transferring the model into their own local communities. This step was supported by the EEA NGO Grants in Bulgaria.
On occasion Kulti Kulti Kitchen is organised in a private setting as we are sometimes invited to host dinners and parties.
