Syrian Cookbook launch at Firstsite Thursday 8 November

Since our Syrian friends arrived nearly three years ago, we have been treated to some amazing meals with recipes from their homeland. We’ve watched in awe at how an expert choice of affordable (including for us hitherto unknown) ingredients can make such quality and tasty fare.

Recently, they’ve been very busy compiling a cookbook of their favourite creations, in association with Refugee Action Colchester and Firstsite. The pictures of the dishes were taken by Marwan Sallouta, a professional photographer,  and the book designed by artist Gee Voucher.

On Thursday 8 November, they’re launching the cookbook at Firstsite, and all are welcome from 18:00 to 20:00. More info at Firstsite here.
