I wanted to let you know about the Sorghum Sisters catering and their community minded endeavours. Sorghum Sisters African Catering was created in the kitchen of the Carlton Primary School to address the employment and social engagement barriers faced by the newly migrant African community in the Carlton Housing Estate. Sorghum Sisters tapped into the passion for cooking of the African women and is now a successful catering business. In addition to this, they offer a vocational training program to refugees to skill them up for long term employment in the hospitality industry. Sorghum Sisters also play a part in the Healthy School Lunches program for a few of the inner suburban schools.
Their speciality is African cuisine, primarily cuisine from the Horn of Africa. So curries, sambosas (pastry puffs), falafels and injera (Ethiopian bread). They also do more standard catering items such as sandwiches, fruit platters, etc. Their menu is here. The ordering is done on line.
I recently attended an event in which they provided the catering. Here are a few photos of more their standard ie non African offerings:
Date rolls and basbosa (coconut slice)
Assorted cookies and pistachio baklava
Chicken and falafel sandwiches
All the food was very fresh and my particular favourites were the pistachio baklava and falafel sandwiches.
If you are in need of catering in the future, do consider Sorghum Sisters as you will also be helping the African migrant community.
Until next time,
