180 Amsterdammers: Make food, not war

Amsterdam is home to 180 nationalities. That’s a world record.  For the Freedom Feast on 5 May 2017 at De Hallen Amsterdam, the Prince Claus Fund and the OBA are inviting 180 Amsterdammers from different countries to share a meal together.

These 180 Amsterdammers left their homelands and headed to Amsterdam for various reasons: some for love, a longing for happiness, some because of an untenable political situation, or simply by happenstance.

By sitting around the table together, we’ll celebrate the delicious diversity of the Dutch capital.

Dinner will be prepared by Prince Claus Laureate, chef and food activist Kamal Mouzawak (Lebanon), and the culinary duo Nadia Zerouali and Merijn Tol, together with cooks Zina Abboud and Ziad en Joudy Asaad from Syria.

For a number of years, Kamal Mouzawak has been successful bringing people from different communities together in Lebanon through cooking and sharing meals. During the Freedom Feast, Mouzawak will speak about his message ‘make food, not war’ and the powerful connections made through sharing food, as well as importance of sustainable farming and production.

Nadia Zerouali and Merijn Tol are currently featured in the new NTR programme Op zoek naar de Granaatappel (Looking for the Pomegranate). Their latest book SOUQ, een tafel vol mezze. (SOUQ, a table full of mezze) will be out soon.
