Description


FOOD BRINGS PEOPLE TOGETHER.

It says, this is who we are, this is our culture.

Recipes for Refuge is a delicious and unique collection offering readers an experience that transcends mere cookery. First, the food. These are the recipes that are passed down from mother to daughter, father to son, recipes that connect these global refugees to the place they once called home. Transport yourself with Salom 's Patacones con Hogoa, Sookjai's Golden Triangle Chicken Curry, Mahnaz's Pomegranate Khoresh, or Rahima's Bariis--the famed rice dish of Somalia--accompanied by gorgeous full-color photographs. Included too are the journey stories of these transplanted cooks, tracing harrowing flight from Saigon as it falls, years spent in Kenyan refugee camps, and dangerous border crossings to escape the Eritrean-Ethiopian conflict, with stunning portraits that reveal the faces behind the term "refugee." Most importantly, Recipes for Refuge celebrates and supports Refugee Women's Alliance, founded by and for refugee women, including many of the cooks featured here.
