At Startup Weekend Zwolle, we asked two chefs - refugees from Palistina/Syria - to prepare dinner at Saturday evening.

The result was amazing: a great variety of excellent food was served and all attendees enjoyed the rich meal these good guys (and their wifes) have been working on for two days!

To me, it's no surprise these chefs want to start a new restaurant in The Netherlands - since they've had a restaurant in Damascus for 10 years. Maybe some people in your network can help their dream to become reality, I'm sure they will appreciate that! You can contact mr. Mohammed Salameh at +31 6 26098022.
