Chef Manal

Syrian Cookery Class with Manal

  • Thu, 23 May 2024 18:15 - 20:45 BST

Nothing beats a home-cooked meal shared with family! And this is what inspires our Family Style Cookery Classes, a fun, laid-back homestyle cooking experience. Here, you will learn to prepare different dishes and then enjoy them with people who, like you, fuel our mission of supporting refugee and migrant chefs on their journey to integration. It’s a cookery class with a conscience, like they say!

Your class will be led by our wonderful Chef Manal from Syria at The Tree Top Cafe in Brighton.

At our Family Style Cookery Classes, you will be grouped with other participants and prepare dishes together as a team. Think of Chef Manal as the head of the family! She will take care of dividing the class into groups, and each group will be responsible for creating one of the dishes. Of course, you are welcome and encouraged to move around during the class to learn about the other dishes being prepared. Throughout the evening, Chef Manal will share stories about their food and culture, and explain how to prepare each of the dishes so you come away with some new cooking tricks and inspiration from Syria. You will also be emailed the recipes after the class.

St Augustine's Arts & Events Centre is now a home for the Arts, Wellbeing, Business and Hospitality sectors.

As well as having a spacious and creative space to rent, we also have the The Tree Top Cafe and the Wild Earth Events businesses based on site.

This whole project aims to become the archetype of what a business and cultural centre should be.

We have internal solutions for most cultural and business gatherings and the gardens will also be used during the summer months to accommodate activities like cream teas, alfresco dining, cultural and corporate outdoor gatherings.

Please drop us a line to info@brightonstaugustinescentre.co.uk for investment and cooperation ideas.

We are also a part of the www.rochebarrettestates.com group

Book your event
Having an exhibition at St Augustine's was a great experience. The staff are eager to help and you feel very supported while there. It is a great space to exhibit in, with a lot of people calling in to use the other facilities. The atmosphere of the place is very special, it feels very inclusive and has great energy. I highly recommend the exhibition space and the Cafe is an added bonus. Thank you all for making me feel so welcome and making the exhibition a wonderful experience.

The staff at St Augustine's dealt all of my needs and provided an invaluable support service to my team of dancers and actors. Amazing place for contemporary and traditional dance pieces. We performed a sell out interactive theatrical production and it was very exciting.
