Chefugee: food, Spain’s refugees & a project building appetities not walls



In this episode of When in Spain I’m talking about refugees in Spain and a fantastic project and association based here in Madrid called Chefugee

What is Chefugee? Chefugee collaborates closely with refugees and asylum seekers from all over the world to organize culinary events – from pop up dinners and lunches to catering, team building activities and cooking classes.

I talk to Natalia Diaz who oversees the Chefugee association here in the Spanish capital and she’ll be explaining more about the Chefugee association, what its mission is, how started and how it’s grown.

And its especially relevant at this time of year because this week Madrid is hosting its third Refugee Food Festival from June 13th until June 22nd, with the participation of 11 restaurants across the Spanish capital and 12 refugee cooks.

Que aproveche!

WHAT IS WHEN IN SPAIN?

The When in Spain show is a weekly podcast show, recorded in Madrid (and other parts of Spain) where l talk about my ‘warts and all’ observations and insights on life and culture on the Iberian peninsular.

I cast an eye on everyday life, people, places, politics, culture and history and attempt to give an honest opinion from a Brit who has a love-frustration relationship with Spain. I shall attempt to dispel or indeed confirm Spanish stereotypes through my ramblings and see if I can delve into the Spanish psyche.
