#AceFoodNews – Sept.10: Pop-up restaurant is part of Talking Peace festival, which attempts to engage people in issues of peace and conflict around world
Chef Haitham Yassin usually cooks Syrian food at the Ayam Zaman restaurant in Shepherd’s Bush, west London. But on Wednesday night he was serving Damascene dishes at a popup restaurant in a railway arch under Waterloo station, with trains rumbling in the background.
Yassin was taking part in an event that was not just about food. For the 50 diners seated at long tables, it was also a chance to hear and learn about the Syrian conflict, which has left more than 230,000 dead and is largely behind the biggest refugee crisis to confront Europe since the second world war.
