Fatayer are a whole category delicious small baked treats that range from open-face, pizza-like flatbreads to cute little baked turnovers, with countless different shapes and fillings. Tonight menu features 3 different fatayers: a type of beef fatayer known as Sfiha with spiced halal ground beef, tomato, parsley, onion, pomegranate molasses and pine nuts -or- or fatayer jibneh with a mix of cheeses, green onion, parsley and black sesame seeds, as well as a fatayer sabaneh with spinach, onions and sumac.

Muhammara (فطاير المحمره)
is a spicy red pepper paste originally from Aleppo but found in countless variations throughout the Levant.

Musabaha مسبحة
Is a Syrian variation on what is probably the best known Levantine dish – chickpea hummus. The ingredients are the same, but the chickpeas are left whole, enrobed in a rich tahini sauce.
Served with fresh veggies, pickles & olives

Salateh Naameh سلطة ناعمة
This “fine salad” can be found throughout the middle east, with tomatoes, cucumber, and white onion are finely diced and seasoned with olive oil, mint and lemon juice.

Roz bel Haleeb رز بحليب
Wherever you find rice, you’ll probably find a version of rice pudding. This delicious, creamy version is scented with cardamom, vanilla and rosewater, and garnished with fresh seasonal fruit.

Newcomer Kitchen is a new project that invites groups of Syrian refugee women to use our kitchen to cook traditional Syrian dishes in a fun, social setting. Meals are prepared and packaged, and then sold online for pickup or delivery to pay for all the ingredients and provide an honorarium for the cooks.

We also offer 1 spot to help/hang out in the kitchen, learn the recipes and join the ladies for family meal on Thursday afternoon. We are asking for a $50 donation for this, which will go to topping up the $ we have to share with the cooks. This is available for purchase online, on a first-come, first-served basis.

Proceeds from the sale of meals goes directly to the newcomer cooks. However this does not cover the costs of the enormous amount of behind-the-scenes coordination required to keep this project going. You can support the Newcomer Kitchen project directly and our vision of expanding this model to support more women in more neighbourhoods!
Help us take this idea into any restaurant kitchen, in any city in the world!
