ARABIAN NIGHT (Sydney)

  • When: Saturday 22nd October, 6.30pm-9pm
  • Where: 107 Projects, 107 Redfern Street, Redfern

HELLO FOODIES! After two sold-out events with us, Chefs Racha and Nidal from Racha’s Syrian Kitchen (as featured in Good Food & SBS Food) are back for another night of deliciousness.

Join us for a sumptuous Arabic-inspired 3-course feast. Want to feast on fatteh? How about some mansaf al-melehi? Trust us, you’re in for a treat. 

This is what a previous diner has said about Racha’s food:

”Probably the best I’ve eaten”

There will be some entertainment on the night too. 

A portion of the ticket sales will be donated to the Manlygees fundraising efforts to sponsor a Kurdish Syrian family to come to Australia. This family has been living in a refugee camp for 10 years. 

EAT WELL TO EMPOWER
