FOOD // Berlin Hummus Festival
Hummus is spreading all over the city. When we started with the Berlin Hummus Festival, there were only a handful of places in which you could enjoy the divine dish. Nowadays, in each quarter you could probably find at least two or three Hummus specialists, competing for “the best hummus in town” title and the neighborhood’s pride.
The past few years and the waves of immigration from Syria also brought more of the northeastern touch of Hummus to our city, and already in the past two editions, this creamy style of Hummus had a strong representation behind the counters.
However, as always, we hardly wish to talk about backgrounds and origins. The reason for our yearly summer gathering is not where we come from, but where we are going, and above all – what we are eating.
Probably the most consensual thing that ever came out of the Middle East, Hummus is not only our mutual love, it is also the future of human nutrition. It is the Arabic contribution for an environmental friendly and healthier world.
This 5th edition of the Hummus Festival joins the world’s efforts for minimizing humanity’s effects on its environment. This edition will be completely vegetarian and plastic free.
In hope for a better (sounding) place, we shall also continue with our musical program of Oriental Beats.
Also in 2020, all we are saying – Give Chickpeas a Chance!
