Food and drink culture in the city is – not surprisingly – a very important and significant part of the Hong Kong lifestyle. From new cafes to new restaurants and bars, there will always be new things to taste and try. So, why not eat and drink for a good cause? Enjoy a delicious Syrian feast and know that you’ll be contributing in aiding children affected by the humanitarian crisis in Syria with #CookForSyria this month in Hong Kong.
Eat for a good cause: #CookForSyria
The global movement #CookForSyria officially launched in London, in 2016, by Clerkenwell Boy and Serena Guen. The charity aims to increase world awareness towards the largest humanitarian crisis we are currently facing, supporting UNICEF’s work for children in Syria. Star chefs that have partaken in this movement include Jamie Oliver and Yotam Ottolenghi who have collectively raised over £250,000 through supper clubs, bake sales, restaurant donations, pop-ups and cookbook sales.
The campaign has since expanded to the United States and Australia, and on 26 October, Dervla Louli and the Forks & Spoons team will be bringing the movement to Hong Kong. Hosted at Beef & Liberty, 110 guests can enjoy a Syrian-inspired Charity Banquet consisting of eight delicious mouth-watering courses.
Eight top chefs in Hong Kong, including Uwe Opocensky, Peggy Chan, Nathan Green, Nicholas Chew, David Lai, Agustin Blabi, Jim Lofdahl and Nicolas Boutin will be cooking up a Syrian-inspired dinner, and the proceeds from the tickets and charity auction will be donated to aid UNICEF’s Syria Relief Appeal and the children affected by the crisis.
The one-night only event is valued at $1,200 per person, and will also include free-flow drinks and raffle prizes.
