The project looked for a common denominator interesting enough for both Roma and non-Roma women; thus gastronomy was found. Roma women are multiply disadvantaged, but they are inclined to overcome their state of vulnerability, but in order to do so they need to acquire plenty of experience and knowledge. The project comprises a food tasting event where Roma women cook and serve authentic and low-cost foods from their own recipes. The target group is the Roma and non-Roma population of Pécs. The long term goal is to decrease prejudice among Roma and non-Roma people, and to facilitate the social advancement of Roma women.
