Palestinian Food and Culture: Dinner and Conversation with Yasmin Khan

Thursday, February 27 2020, 6pm – 9.30pm, at Barings, 20 Old Bailey, London EC4M 7BF

Enjoy dinner with Yasmin Khan, award-winning author, broadcaster and campaigner, with recipes chosen from her best-selling cookbook, Zaitoun.

The evening will include Yasmin in conversation with Don Sloan, Chair of the Oxford Cultural Collective.

This event forms part of Migrations: All Our Voices, a series of events that celebrate the positive contributions of generations of migrants who have shaped the UK’s rich and diverse culture. Crucially, at a time of growing uncertainty for many in minority groups resulting from political and constitutional upheaval, this hard-hitting series stimulates meaningful reflection on the place of migrants in British society.

This event is being stage in partnership with Barings and EP Insights.

Yasmin Khan’s work sits on the intersection of food, travel and politics and her critically-acclaimed books, The Saffron Tales and Zaitoun, use everyday stories of human connection to challenge stereotypes of the Middle East.

Yasmin has worked as a presenter for BBC R4’s Food Programme and CNN’s Perfect Dish series. She is a regular media commentator, appearing on flagship programmes such as Newsnight, the Today programme and Women’s Hour, and writes for a variety of publications including the Guardian, the Telegraph, the New Statesmen, Saveur, Afar, Food52 and Roads and Kingdoms. Prior to her writing career, Yasmin trained in Law and was a human rights campaigner for a decade, running national and international campaigns on poverty and human rights.

Yasmin is also a sought after public speaker who has delivered hundreds of motivational and inspiring speeches around the world on issues relating to activism, creativity, burnout, career change and human rights in the Middle East
