In our cookbook "Eine Her(d)zensangelegenheit" we take you on a journey through the Ethiopian cuisine. In addition to Ethiopian recipes, 12 of our apprentices who are completing vocational training at the SELAM restaurant introduce themselves.


The cookbook can be ordered now.

"I already have work experience in the kitchen, but I could still learn a lot of new things. I enjoy the training a lot. I also always try new recipes at home.


Food plays a big role in my life and so - if I were prime minister for a day - I would offer food in a big hall for all people in need."


- Aselefech Benega, Home Economics & Gastronomy Apprentice

- Bethlehem Sissay, Apprentice Home Economics & Gastronomy

Thank you!

Our cookbook, which was originally developed from a final project of our employee Sarah Meier, is a joint project in which many hard-working hands have collaborated. We would like to express our sincere thanks to:

  • our sponsor Sailer Druck Medien GmbH, who has supported us with printed products for many years.

  • the SELAM trainees who agreed to tell us more about themselves, their training and future aspirations.

  • the trainer and long-time SELAM employee Azenegash, for arranging the visit to the training classes and for preparing the recipes.

  • Genet Meier-Röschli for translating the recipes from Amharic to German and for the cooking tips.
