A Taste Of Home was dreamed up and created by over 50 Syrian refugee families who have found sanctuary in the North of England. Through community meals, cooking workshops and neighbourhood gatherings, the people in this book have tried to integrate into their new home, while honouring the land they left. At many of these events, local people and refugees were able to bond, communicate and develop friendships over delicious, home-cooked meals. Food is such a central part of Syrian family life and each recipe comes with a story about the much loved homes these families have left. Syria is so much more than the destruction we see on the news; we hope that this recipe book helps capture a glimpse of the history and culture that created this beautiful country and its people.
