When I first read about Skuhna I wasn’t in Ljubljana, but the idea of a higher level of food diversity was enough to put it on my “to do” list and I’m glad I did. When I got back, started my research and got to know the main purpose of the project, I was amazed by how clear and simple it is. I realized that the phrase “love goes through the stomach” applies to so much more than just intimate love.
This social enterprising project focuses on migrants from the Global South and is helping them network in a new environment. How to create bonds between the local community and migrants and with that bring old stereotypes to an end? With a little help from food!
Ljubljana still lacks some culinary essentials, even though many of us would prefer to perhaps get a new Vietnamese restaurant instead of yet another bakery and Skuhna started to fill the gap – the gap in a culinary sense as well as the gap between different social groups. Because with new food you also get in touch with a new culture and when you get the knowledge you can see that all stereotypes are just a waste of time.
From now on Skuhna is also an actual restaurant, so you can swing by and enjoy all the flavors!
