#CookForSyria is a new fundraising initiative curated by Clerkenwell Boy, SUITCASE Magazine and Gemma Bell, in aid of Unicef's NEXTGeneration London.
Throughout November restaurateurs, chefs, bakers and café owners from around the UK have been invited to take part in #CookForSyria by putting a ‘Syrian inspired twist’ to one of their favourite signature dishes and donating £2 from each sale of that dish. Syrian cuisine is one of the oldest in the world and reflects the country’s rich cultural heritage with influences from Turkey, Persia and many other Middle Eastern countries.
Special Syrian-inspired recipes will also be shared online - alongside additional recipes from award winning chefs, bakers and cookbook authors to encourage people to host their own #CookForSyria supper clubs and charity bakes.
“We hope that through the #CookForSyria campaign we will not only be able to raise significant and much needed money for Unicef UK's Children of Syria Fund, we will also increase awareness of the plight of children in the war-torn country. Through cooking, sharing recipes and the power of social media, we invite everyone to help make a difference and positive contribution towards this important initiative."
We can't wait for you to join us. #CookForSyria.
