MENU — August 11
[beef] Jazmaz جز مز
Eggs poached or baked in a richly flavoured tomato sauce can be found in one version or another all around the Mediterranean, across North Africa from Morocco to Israel, where is it known as shakshouka, with local variations also found in Turkey, Iraq, Italy and Spain. I guess it should come as no surprise that Syrians have their own special version of this delicious dish. We’ll be serving it up with two mini sujuk beef sausages on the side, and fresh pita bread.
[vegetarian] Jazmaz جز مز
The same dish, but with haloumi cheese..
M’tabbal koossa متبل كوسا
A relative of hummus or babaganoush, this zucchini-based meze dip is cool and refreshing, made with combination of thick yogurt and tahini, seasoned with a bit garlic, lemon and cumin.
Salatet al-Zeitun سلطة زيتون
Another tasty and uncommon mezze, this salad features chopped green olives, tomatoes, red & green peppers, walnuts and green onions in a dressing of fresh thyme, garlic, pomegranate molasses and olive oil.
Roz bel Haleeb رز بحليب
Wherever you find rice, you’ll probably find a version of rice pudding. This creamy version is scented with cardamom, vanilla and rosewater, and garnished with some fresh Ontario 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!
