Refugee Chef Dinner Banquet

What you’ll do

Enjoy a delicious dinner banquet with a different cuisine each time and support refugees!

Join a small group and enjoy a tasty three course banquet at bohemian cafe Parliament on King. You’ll sample food from the homelands of asylum seekers and refugees (think Burmese/Rohingya, Iraqi, Iranian, Palestinean, Nepali, Sri Lankan, Ugandan and more). Each dinner banquet has a different chef and menu, and we often keep it a surprise until the night. Vegetarians, vegans and guests with other dietary requirements are more than welcome – just let us know in advance.

Dates for 2024 (first-half of year)

  • Wed 28 Feb
  • Wed 27 Mar
  • Wed 24 Apr (waitlist only)
  • Wed 15 May (waitlist only)
  • Wed 5 June (waitlist only)
  • Wed 26 June (waitlist only)

To join the waitlist for any dinner and to be the first to find out about dinner dates for the second half of the year, book a waitlist spot for 1 July (no dinner actually occuring that night).

Your hosts will invite the chefs to share their stories, and you’re more than welcome to ask them questions about the food they’ve prepared and their stories of how they have come to Australia. The dinner is hosted in the cosy front room of Parliament on King. Parliament on King’s mission is simple: to make lovely food. But in doing this they address the barriers to economic, social and cultural participation asylum seekers, refugees and recent arrivals to Australia face, by providing real work, training and community.

All proceeds from this event go towards funding Parliament on King’s important work.
