As part of Entrepreneurship Week, the ma-terre Association, in close collaboration with Alter Start Food and Cuisine Lab, is offering you a unique programme of 5 Masterclass in ma-terre’s professional 13-burner induction kitchen at the Ferme de Budé. This represent an opportunity to meet entrepreneurs from migrant backgrounds, listening to their life stories and cooking a recipe from their native country. How have they managed to reinvent themselves through entrepreneurship and how have they turned their roots and intercultural identity into a strength? How does their knowledge serve the sustainable food transition by diversifying vegetarian cooking options and promoting Geneva’s local products?
The Masterclass with Sri Lankan chef Gaayathri Sathasivam, from Cuisine Lab, will take place in ma-terre’s professional induction kitchen at the Ferme de Budé. From her grandmother, the chef learned how to use spices, foods and recipes for traditional Sri Lankan dishes and give them all their flavour. Arriving in 2017, she hopes to open her own Sri Lankan restaurant to spread wider the knowledge of the cuisine she loves so much.
