If you're looking for a place where you can meet like-minded people, or if you're a connoisseur and are interested in supporting a worthwhile project… you just want to engage yourself in your neighborhood, then you should consider our cooking lessons.

In AfricanTide Union, everyone is welcome in the kitchen, whether you're a beginner and just learn the basics, or you have experience in cooking already.
Our cooking classes are taught by local refugees and immigrants and also from other participants.

Lessons are interactive and guess what… our guests can prepare and cook the meal with us, taste and the Shaping of meals, which are split at the end of the lesson.
Each event offers a realistic cultural experience, the opportunity to sample authentic cuisine and interact with refugees and immigrants.

Furthermore, you can book for 6-10 people, private cooking lessons with our chefs. If you want to organize a unique, interactive party with delicious food and great party design, this is a fantastic opportunity that you should not let go.

Additionally, the confidence gained by sharing knowledge about healthy eating is immeasurable.

Our events provide the opportunity for true realistic encounters between cultures, and that contributes to our inevitably Dortmund’s cultural richness and welcoming culture.
All proceeds from the cooking events is used exclusively for training and learning opportunities for our participating refugees and immigrants.
