This week for episode 6 I’m joined by Hadi and Anja from Über den Tellerrand, a charitable organisation in Berlin which aims to improve the integration of refugees in German society, through social projects like cooking glasses, community gardening, tandem exchanges, dance workshops, a cookbook and lots more.
Anja is in charge of “Champions Management” at Über den Tellerrand (champions are volunteer project coordinators – you can be one too!), and Hadi is a refugee from Aleppo in Syria who has been in Berlin for 5 months. Through Über den Tellerrand, Hadi has taught Syrian cooking classes during his time in Berlin.
You can order the Über den Tellerrand cookbook, which contains over 30 recipes and stories shared by refugees from 14 different countries, as well as beautiful photography and more to learn about Über den Tellerrand.

For hungry Berliners: For the month of October, four of the community members from Über den Tellerrand – Azad & Mzkin, Ahmed & Moder- are taking over the kitchen of Kantine Neun at Markthalle Neun to prepare delicious Syrian and Egyptian food.
