A Taste of Palestine in Cambridge
Saturday 16th March at 6:00pm
St Paul’s Church, Hills Road, Cambridge CB2 1JP (Directions)
Doors: 6:00pm | Sunset: 6:30pm (breaking the fast) | Dinner: 7:00pm
Celebrate the tastes and sounds of Palestine with an Iftar feast of traditional Palestinian dishes under the watchful eye of Palestinian chef Sally Azzam, followed by music from the critically acclaimed Palestinian Oud player Saied Silbak and Cambridge Takht & The Pomegranates.
There will also be a silent auction, an introduction to the importance of Palestinian cuisine and spoken word performances. All proceeds from the dinner, the auction and donations will be for Amos Trust’s Emergency Appeal for Gaza.
Sally Azzam from the Liwan Cafe in Nazareth, Northern Israel, will be working with a team of volunteer chefs to cook dishes from across Palestine, which will feature as part of this 4-course Iftar feast — the name of the meal held at sunset during Ramadan.
Saied Silbak is a critically acclaimed composer, oud player and singer from Shfar’am in the lower Galilee. He has performed around the world at festivals and concerts.
