Read some articles about us.



"The Black Food Festival made its way to Tel Aviv on Thursday, setting up shop at the Cuckoo’s Nest Tel Aviv Bar and Art gallery in Jaffa, with some 20 exhibitors giving hundreds of attendees a mouthful of tasty creativity, all made with natural ingredients like coffee, cacao, and beans for that black color."

"What does Helsinki have in common with Budapest, Berlin, Tel-Aviv, New York and London? How about hamburgers, risotto, ice-cream, tacos, macarons and cocktails – a la black! Helsinki has jumped on-board the black food trend, and been eagerly plotting a plan to join its dark allies, premiering Helsinki Black Food Festival on 31st of March 2019."



"What's more goth than wearing black?
How about eating black? If the very thought sends a shiver up your spine, you might consider making haste for the grimly fiendish New York Dark food Festival, which debuts in Williamsburg. Hungry darkwavers (and everyone else) will know the existential joy of indulging in everything from black sesame ice cream, to black garlic and of course, black chocolate - as well as an array of inventive and innovative dishes that experiment with, naturally, the color black."
