We are very excited to invite you to the
International Almere Snack & Share Christmas event.
Date: Saturday, 15 December 2018
Time: 16:00 to 20:00
Place: BierFabriek, Apollo Hotel, 1st Floor, Koetsierbaan 2, Almere City
The theme of the event is “Snack and Share”. International Almere is a community with many different cultures. During the Snack & Share event we want to give everyone the opportunity to have a taste of different cultures via food of different kitchens of the world.
How does it work?
Everyone who joins the event brings a platter of snacks (something you can eat with your hands). Your platter must be enough for let’s say 10 to 15 people (or more if you want). You can cook the snacks yourself or buy them in a shop. It would be nice if the snack is somehow related to your own background/tradition/culture.
For example, if you are from India, you may want to bring a platter of samosas. If you are from Mexico, you may want to bring a bowl of tortilla chips with guacamole. If you are from Hungary, you may want to bring Kürtőskalács. If you are from Italy, you may want to bring slices of pizza. Etcetera.
We kindly ask you to also bring a description of the food, in English, with some background information about it (country, when is the snack usually consumed in your country?, etcetera). Also, please mention the ingredients of the snack, so that people with allergies or vegetarians will know if they can taste or not.
You can choose to bring something out of three categories: sweet or savory or vegetarian. Hopefully there will be a good balance between what everyone will bring. But just to be sure, we would like to know upfront, what you will bring. If everyone, for example, will only bring something sweet, then we will contact a few of you with the request to bring something of another category. We will place all the platters on tables and that way we will have a multicultural buffet.
You don’t have to bring something to drink. Interational Amere will make sure there are drinks available, free of charge for you. We charge no entrance fee, so your only costs will be (the ingredients of) the snacks.
We are currently organizing a diverse programme of entertainment for the event. For the kids we will organize fun activities they can occupy themselves with. If you have ideas about entertainment, then please let us know, maybe we can fit it into the program.
