We are proud to announce that thanks to AMES Social Enterprise, the ever-popular Sorghum Sisters will be providing the St Kilda Sings choir with supper! The sell-out Sorghum Sisters special dining events as part of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival have added to their reputation for quality food and great services, providing a mix of modern and classic Horn of Africa cuisine.
The pioneering Sorghum Sisters was founded in 2005, and comprise of Siti Ibrahim, Nuria Khalil and Rahma Ibrahim, all of whom were refugees from the Horn of Africa. Aside from providing an excellent catering service, the Sorghum Sisters are constantly involved in a diverse range of local community projects – including a offering a 12 month traineeship in Certificate II in Hospitality, provide Injera bread for local African communities and make healthy (and tasty!) lunches for the Carlton and South Brunswick Primary Schools.
The Sorghum Sisters not only prepare incredible meals, but also work tirelessly to preserve the traditional recipes, which have been handed down through the generations! The recipes have never been written down, but have been lovingly taught by grandmothers and mothers over time. The Sisters cook as their grandmothers did, preparing and cooking everything from scratch, again proving the dedication the Sisters have to sharing truly authentic and delicious food – cooked from the heart.
Welcome aboard, Sorghum Sisters!
