“Our Syria. Recipes from Home” is a collection of stories and recipes from one of the largest culinary cultures in the world, written by two young passionate cooks Dina Mousawi and Itab Azzam.
The book is a celebration of the taste, culinary culture and raw materials of Syria and, at the same time, a celebration of what food and memory can represent for people and for the identity of a nation. The two authors met Syrian women in the Middle East and in Europe, spending months cooking with them, learning their recipes, listening to their stories, maintaining a strong culinary identity.
Dina and Itab are among the special guests of the festival 2018, with a Show Cooking (Saturday 14 April, Scuola d’Arte Culinaria Cordon Bleu), a book presentation (Thursday 12, Cinema La Compagnia, 7.30pm) and an aperitif (Saturday 14, Cinema La Compagnia, 8.00pm).
