Mageiros Pop-Up was born from a course at Coexist Community kitchen called ESOL for health -Cooking & Conversation which brings together people from different cultures, sharing traditional food, learning English, and supporting peoples integration into our local community.
We use our sessions as a way of bringing people together from different countries and different walks of life; working with various organisations to create networks of collaboration and support.


We believe that cooking is something which can help us rediscover and connect with our past as well as something which can transport us creatively through experimentation and taste. Cooking can be so much more than just an instrument to feed us. It is about the people living it and what it means to them.


Throughout the course some of the groups members, expressed their interest in sharing this on a large scale and this is how Mageiros Pop-up comes about.


We will start the journey presenting traditional dishes from Pakistan and will subsequently visit a different region from around the world.


Come and join our Pakistan feast on Thursday 23rd of November at 7.30




In ancient Greece, the word for cook, butcher, and priest was the same; mageiros-  the word shares an etymological root with magic. Even the most ordinary dish follows a satisfying arc of transformation; magically becoming more than the sum of its ordinary parts, and in almost every dish, you can find, besides the culinary ingredients, the ingredients of a story!

Coexist Community Kitchen


In 2012 The Coexist Community Kitchen was a seedling of an idea, when the disused kitchen space on the 3rd floor of Hamilton House was in desperate need of a transformation. With much love, time, energy, and of course funding we managed to start moving it into a reality! We lifted the tiles, cleaned the ceilings, scrubbed the floors, painted the walls, bought pots and pans (and much, much more) and we now have a fully equipped and accessible cookery school and hire out space in the centre of Bristol!


Our aims and objectives: 


We want to provide a space to learn, create, share and enjoy food.
In order to do this we welcome anyone who would like to run events and workshops, use food enjoyable and creatively, share knowledge, and bring together communities, encouraging:


Cooking skills  recreational and vocational
Living skills
Politics and sustainability


A big focus is our social outreach work, and in collaboration with other Bristol organisations we run cookery courses and workshops with groups that might not otherwise have access to them.
