A special edition cookbook for #CookforSyria to raise additional awareness and funds for the world’s largest humanitarian crisis, with all publisher profits going to Unicef’s Syria Relief Fund.
The ongoing conflict in Syria has caused the largest
humanitarian crisis since WW II, with the lives of more
than 8 million children in danger. Many have lost family
and friends and have been forced to flee their homes.
50% of all Syrian refugees are children and boys as young
as seven are being recruited to fight. The risk of losing a
generation grows every day.
The #CookForSyria Recipe Book is the product of a hugely
successful fundraising initiative organised by Clerkenwell
Boy (@clerkenwellboyEC1, 151,000 followers on
Instagram) and SUITCASE Magazine.
The month-long campaign focusing around Syrian cuisine
involved some of the world’s greatest chefs, including
Yottam Otolenghi, Jamie Oliver and Angela Hartnett, and
their recipes are included here.
