One Bowl – Indian community dinner

A while back, I got in touch with a nice guy who serves Indian-inspired food to the community on a non-profit basis. His vision was to help those who have little or no money with food and good moments. He therefor opened up a community kitchen where the concept is simple – come by for a good meal, and pay as much as you feel like.

I was instantly interested in his social project and obviously, I had to try it out myself… I mean, original Indian food?

It’s been a while since my last visit, but I still have it in mind every Wednesday evening, and I have to swing by soon again, because it’s not all about the delicious food. It’s also a very good way to come into contact with other people – international as well as Danish.

The concept is to mingle and sit at the same table, talking to the persons beside you and joining in on the cleaning afterwards.

The best part is to get in touch with the kitchen before and ask to help out with whatever tasks. I have done this a few times, and I always learn a few cool things from Indian cooking, like different ingredients and ways to get lots of flavor. It’s so different from Danish cuisine, there is a lot to learn for an amateur chef like myself.
