Unfortunately, there is a high rate of unemployment amongst newly settled refugees even if they are highly skilled or qualified. Culinary Tales is aimed at improving the employability, skills, and integration of these refugees into the Australian community via a standalone cooking class business, to promote their uniquely diverse culinary experiences and culture. Culinary Tales provides refugees with work experience by employing them to help run a cooking class to showcase their exotic cuisines. Food has a tangible role in forging links to connect a diverse range of cultures. Not only can we share the ways of cooking of refugees, we can also share their stories with the wider community.

For our customers, Culinary Tales is a unique cooking experience that gives you the opportunity to learn authentic recipes from our refugee chefs and hear their stories. Get involved in preparing and cooking traditional meals together as a group with fellow Sydney-siders, gain insight into the experiences as a refugee and enjoy the delicious food together at the end of the class.

Culinary Tales was created by Enactus Sydney, a community of students, academics and business leaders committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to transform lives and shape a better, more sustainable world.


Entrepreneurial - having the perspective to see an opportunity and the talent to create value from that opportunity

Action - the willingness to do something and the commitment to see it through even when the outcome is not guaranteed

Us - A group of people who see themselves connected in some important way; individuals that are part of a greater whole
