Women in Hospitality Birmingham

Barber Home – 30 July

Inspired by Hendrik Goudt’s beautiful etching ‘The Mocking of Ceres’ (1610), Chloë Qureshi, founder of Women in Hospitality Birmingham, has written a series of delicious, mouth-watering recipes.

Chloë celebrates the Goddess Ceres and the four seasons through the mystical elder tree, with its fresh, zesty flowers of spring to the earthy, tart berries of autumn.

Try the recipes, find out about Chloë’s work, and discover women and non-binary led restaurants and food producers in the West Midlands and beyond.

Women in Hospitality Birmingham is an initiative set up to create a network for women and non-binary folk working in the food and hospitality industry across the city.
