What to expect? Tathawaq is a 2-hour experience shared with 8 people coming from different cultures and backgrounds; hopefully you have never met them before. In the first hour of the experience; we do storytelling from our cultures allowing you (explorers) to bond with the people from the celebrated culture (Maestro’s culture) and other cultures too. The second moment of connection with the celebrated culture happens over the “Food for the Soul”. Zaha promotes the use of homegrown ingredients and the produce of marginalized farmers and women in different cultures. At this part of the experience we celebrate specific traditional food ingredients, and the efforts of the people behind them.
