[chicken] Jaj Batata bil Foron جاج و بطاطا بالفرن
Potatoes have become part of the comfort food repertoire all over the world, and the Mediterranean is no exception. Everywhere from France to Greece to Egypt has their own version of a simple and satisfying meal of roast chicken and potatoes; Syrians like theirs with lots of roast garlic, bay leaf and a hint of spicy of Aleppo pepper, along with a lemony garlic aioli. Served with a side of Fasolia bel Zait

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!
