NEWCOMER KITCHEN — Aug 3

August 3, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

- $5 – $50 (Sold out)

[lamb] Musaqait Elbatinjan ( مسقعة الباذنجان )
With eggplants and tomatoes in seasons, there are lots of wonderful Levantine dishes to make! This dish, a flavourful eggplants stew with green peppers, chickpeas and small cubes of lamb is a lighter cousin of Greek Moussaka, and is equally good hot or cold.

[mushroom] Musaqait Elbatinjan ( مسقعة الباذنجان )
All the same delicious flavours, but with mushrooms instead of lamb.

Served with rez bel sharieh (rice with golden fried vermicelli).

Tabbouleh تبولة‎‎
Originally from the mountains of Syria and Lebanon, tabbouleh has become one of the most popular salads in the Middle East. A fragrant herb salad of parsley and mint, tomato and onion, with a scattering of bulgur, and seasoned with olive oil, lemon, and salt.

Baloza بالوظة
A delightful and refreshing parfait that layers a silky orange-blossom infused milk pudding with a tangy fruit-based spread (often orange or apricot) and is topped with a sprinkling of pistachio and some 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!
