NEWCOMER KITCHEN — Feb 23

February 23, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

- $5 – $50

[beef] Shishbarak شيش برك
Almost every cuisine in the world has their comfort food dumplings, and Syria is no exception. A soft dough is handmade from flour, salt and water and filled with cooked onions, olive oil, halal ground beef, salt and pepper and then baked. A thick, tangy yogurt sauce is prepared by cooking strained yogurt with starch, which is then spiced with aromatic fried garlic. The dumplings are added to the warm sauce, and the dish is garnished with fresh parsley, mint and toasted pine nuts. Served with Rez bel Shairieh (rice with vermicelli).

[vegetarian] Shishbarak شيش برك
These delicious dumplings are filled with a mix of mushrooms, onions and spices.

Salateh Malfouf سلطة ملفوف
A cool, refreshing salad made of chopped cabbage, diced tomatoes and pomegranate seeds, dressed with olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, sumac, and fresh mint.

Knafeh Nabulsia كنافة نابلسية
This version of knafeh, a dessert with a base of mild white cheese (also known as Nabulsi) topped with a crispy shredded wheat surface, doused with a scented sugar syrup, originates in the Palestinian city of Nablus as far back as 10th century, but variations spread with the Ottoman Empire to include much of the Middle East. Nablus is still renowned for its knafeh — they even made a giant one weighing in at 1,350kg for the Guinness Book of World Records!

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!
