Linda Thornton, manager of Goole Courtyard, explained that the World Food Café is an exciting idea to promote the vibrancy of different cultures now living in the Goole area.
"Over the past few years Goole has changed and people from across the world have come here to work. Some families have decided that Goole is a place where they would like to settle and that is now happening.
"There have been a few smaller events organised in the town where local people have prepared their specialised dishes, we thought it would be a great idea to combine these with some of our own and make them available on a regular basis. We have now developed a menu that has not been seen anywhere in East Yorkshire before."
The World Food Café is also about providing value for money. Food will be reasonably priced and will mean that families will be able to come and enjoy a meal together, as well as participating in some free entertainment including cookery demonstrations and a salsa dancing class.
Linda is hoping that the World Food Café can become a regular feature in the Goole calendar. She also has other plans including developing a World Food Café social enterprise business, where the concept can be hired for parties or events across the East Riding and beyond.
She said: "We feel really strongly about embracing the opportunities new cultures living in Goole bring and there is no better way of doing that than through people's stomachs."
The World Food Café is open from 12-3pm on Saturday, 2 April at Goole Courtyard. All meals will cost less than £3 for adults and £1 for children. Cookery demonstrations will take place from 1.30-3.00pm. Salsa dancing will be taking place from 2-4pm.
