[chicken] Musakhan مسخن

Over the last 60 years, many people from the Palestinian diaspora have found their way to Syria, bringing elements of their food and culture with them. Musakhan is a traditional Palestinian dish that has become very popular in Syria, especially in the South. Very thin sheets of taboon flatbread are filled with cooked chicken, onions that have been caramelized in olive oil, and a generous helping of tangy sumac. They are rolled up into small cigars and baked in an oven, and then dusted with more sumac and pomegranate molasses before serving.
 
[vegetarian] Fattayer S’baneh فطاير سبانخ
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. Fatayer Sabaneh is a triangular pastry filled with spinach and onions cooked in olive oil, flavoured with tangy sumac.
 
Mutabal Kousa ( متبل كوسا)
A delicious meze dip made with fried zucchini, tahini, garlic and yogurt, garnished with parsley and olive oil.
 
Malfouf Salateh 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.
 
Mabrosheh bil mrabah مبروشة بالمربى
Syrian jam squares; some recipes are nearly universal. Buttery cake base with apricot jam and a shredded streusel-like topping is a very old traditional and popular Arabic dessert, but would also be a familiar sight in a Canadian bakery or holiday table.

Newcomer Kitchen is a new project that invites groups of Syrian newcomer 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 a source of revenue for the cooks.

We also offer “Guest Cook” spots on Wednesdays where you can help & hang out in the kitchen, learn the recipes and join the ladies for family meal. These can now be booked via AirBnB Experiences.

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!
