February Recipes of Life Update

The tutors and the participants discussed the main dishes which will be prepared at a future Shared Lunch.

The group wrote all the ingredients, with their quantities, for the main dishes (Falafel (below), Kabab hindi, Kanafeh).

Furthermore, it was discussed how much time each dish will take so the time can be managed on the day.

Maryam very kindly offered to demonstrate making Kebab Hindi at the next class. 

Heam made Kanafeh (below) and she did very well.

Youthful Recipes of Life Update

Last week the second “Recipes of Life” session – organised with Dulwich Centre as a series for youths – was held. The idea is to provide a platform for the young girls to express any family issues they face after coming to Australia.

The focus of this session was a discussion around ways young girls can address issues when dealing with parents and provide tips. These tips will later be put together as a resource that will be helpful for other parents and young girls in similar situation.

The recipe was named “Fixing the Family”.

The session provided participants space to discuss and share issues that concern them. Most had similar issues but different ways to find solutions. It was based on many factors such as culture, family values and more. It will be interesting to see how all this unfolds when we discuss this recipe from the girls at the next session with mums.
