Burmese Village Tickets!
Pay what you can ticketing: To make this a profitable fundraiser for Zin Zin and the Spring Cafe we do need the majority of sales to be $80 – $90, but if you are a student, have young children, or are in a tough financial spot, $70 is still a great contribution to the cause and we would love to see you there! For those of you who can pay more know that you are helping subsidize those that can’t pay as much. And in the spirit of welcoming a diverse community, a special deal is offered if you know or work with a refugee that wants to join you as your guest for the evening. Then it’s 2 tickets for $120!
What Are You Supporting?
Burmese Village is a series of 5 course dinners prepared by Zin Zin, a Burmese refugee with a dream of opening the first Burmese restaurant in Denver. The majority of proceeds go to Zin Zin to help her take steps towards her goal. So far she has gained experience by doing small-scale catering and cooking classes. This Fall she will have the opportunity to start selling her famous spring rolls at Spring Cafe, a social enterprise that aims to provide employment and training for refugees that want to pursue jobs in the food service industry. 10% of proceeds will go to the Spring Institute, a non-profit serving the immigrant and refugee community that founded the Spring Cafe. Proceeds will be directly focused on the Spring Cafe’s training program to support more refugees in getting their food businesses off the ground. Support Zin Zin and the Spring Cafe with your foodie funds and get ready to enjoy an exceptional evening filled with authentic food and opportunities to learn about Burmese culture.

Burmese Village 5 Course Dinners
Burmese Village Dinners are a doorway into the world of rich and vibrant food culture that exists right under our unsuspecting noses. Did you know there are close to 5,000 Burmese refugees living in Denver and Aurora? And that Burmese cuisine is considered “the next big thing” by foodies in New York?
Attendees will delight in an authentic 5 course Burmese feast and enjoy food demos and other cultural activities between courses. Denver’s growing refugee community have essential contributions to make, inspiring voices to be heard, and delicious cuisines to be shared. Burmese Village dinners are a way to celebrate diversity by connecting with “the World Around the Corner.” Meet your Burmese neighbors and learn a little bit about their food and culture!
Fooition has hosted two Burmese Village 5-course dinners already, where guests enjoyed exotic, home-cooked dishes and learned a little about Burmese culture. Zin Zin thoughtfully orchestrates each menu to be unique and in harmony with the season. During the food demos you will learn about the health properties of many of the ingredients used and the benefits of preparing them in traditional ways.
