The Berlin Hummus Festival 2021 is already the 5th edition. According to the operator, there were only a handful of restaurants in the city where you could enjoy this divine dish at the first festival. Today there are at least 2 or 3 hummus specialists in each district, competing for the “best hummus in town” and the pride of the neighborhood.
With the wave of immigration from Syria, the last few years brought the northeastern hummus style to our city, so that this creamy variant was already well represented at the stands in the last two years.
However – like every year – you don’t want to concentrate too much on the background and origins. Because the motivation for the annual summer festival is not where we come from, but where we want to go – and above all what we eat together.
What is behind the Berlin Hummus Festival 2021
According to the organizers, hummus is probably the most consensual thing to ever come from the Middle East – it is not only our mutual love, but also the future of human nutrition. It is the Arab contribution to a greener and healthier world.
The Berlin Hummus Festival is part of the global effort to minimize human impact on our environment – therefore it will be exclusively vegetarian and free of plastic.
As part of the effort to improve the local taste (not only that of the tongue, but also that of the ears), the musical program will continue with Oriental Beats.
The loving motto and the call to everyone is: “Give chickpeas a chance!”
