During his residency at the Rijksakademie, alumnus Donghwan Kam made a mobile community kitchen. He donated this kitchen to BOOST, a cultural education centre for newcomers from refugee backgrounds in Amsterdam.
To mark the transition of the kitchen, Donghwan Kam organised four cooking classes in collaboration with our social practice workshop, for which he invited regular visitors to teach their favourite home-meal recipes from their country of origin. This has now resulted in the richly varied cookbook 'Cook or Hoop', including Sudanese, Ethiopian, Palestinian, and Iranian recipes, which will be presented at BOOST.You are welcome at BOOST from 16:00 – 19:00 hours. There will be live cooking. You do not need to register.
