What the Fattoush? are serving plant-based, Palestinian plates alongside coffee, cakes and pastries at The Hornbeam this spring and summer.
What the Fattoush? is a plant-based, Palestinian street food company founded by best friends Jess and Meg. They were taught to cook Middle Eastern food whilst volunteering at refugee camps across Europe and Palestine. Gluten free options available.
What the Fattoush? donate 10% of their profits to SkatePal – an NGO supporting young people in Palestine through skateboarding.
Kali has worked as a freelance chef for more than ten years, travelling the world for work and pleasure. She’s always been a lover of food and conscious of the treatment of animals and well being of the earth.
Fascinated by the way food works with your body Kali trained at the Natural Gourmet Institute in New York, a school specialising in vegetarian health supportive cooking, this is where her style of cooking began to develop. Building relationships with local growers such as Growing Communities has encouraged Kali’s enthusiasm and belief in the need to be more in touch with where our food comes from and the impact the food system has on our environment and local community.
