“As much as I have integrated into my European lifestyle, I always hold the roots of my African heritage close to my heart and my taste buds. Sharing soul food with generations to come helps to close the cultural gap for Africans living in diaspora worldwide. My goal is to bring all people together through dishes that sustain the body, mind and soul,” Ms Piroth said.

The “Woman’s day” will indeed be a colourful event since all women participating from different communities are expected to come dressed in their traditional dresses/outfits.

The “Woman’s day” event will be held on 30th October 2021 from 13:00hrs CET at Philipp-Heck-Straße 10, 63457 Hanau.
