In a Nutshell

The Stories On Our Plate (SOOP) supper club series celebrates cuisines showcased by refugee, former refugee and asylum seeker, and migrant chefs. Celebrating our differences through the shared experience of a meal underlines our philosophy. At SOOP, taste, memory and stories are the common denominators that unite us a people. We take diners to the kitchen table of our mothers and grandmothers, bringing up stories and notions of commensality that everyone can relate to.

Our monthly supper club series is only one part of the story. Central to SOOP is a culinary incubator training programme for refugees wishing to launch future food ventures of their own – aimed at also countering the employability barriers faced when seeking to pursue a career in the food industries.

In each month we showcase a different chef. These insightful and interactive evenings are not to be missed!

Yesterdays event was amazing. I am the venue owner and was in attendance for the whole event. I was really impressed with the level of detail Ribale went to to create a warm inviting atmosphere, & the guests were all looked after very well. Everyone seemed very happy. The food was well presented and delicious. We hope to have Brunch Beirut back again very soon.

Great and plentiful food, lovely hosts, nice atmosphere

I loved the experience and the food! I am looking forwards to the next one!!
