Invite your friends and #CookForSyria. Making a difference has never tasted so good.


#CookForSyria started off as an idea between two friends with a mutual love of food and a desire to help those in need. Little did they know that a simple hashtag and a series of locally held events in London would lead to the beginnings of a global movement.

With NEXTGen’s support, ClerkenwellBoy, Serena Guen (of SUITCASE Magazine) and Gemma Bell (of Gemma Bell and company) have created a campaign which aims to increase awareness of the largest humanitarian crisis of our time, as well as raise the funds needed to aid children in Syria and the surrounding countries who have been displaced by war. Since its inception, hundreds of people from different backgrounds and nationalities have shown their solidarity by joining this initiative – including top chefs, award-winning food writers and home cooks – cooking, baking and sharing Syrian-inspired dishes at their restaurants with their guests, at home with their friends and across social media with their fans and followers. #CookForSyria has also provided a platform for Syrian families and those with a love of Middle Eastern cuisine to share recipes with each other, along with the stories behind those dishes.

We can't wait for you to join us. #CookForSyria.
