[chicken] Fatteh Djaj فتّة الدجاج
Fatteh (فتّة‎‎ meaning crushed or crumbs) is a broad category of Levantine dishes made with pieces of crispy flatbread layered with yogurt and other ingredients. It is popular across Egypt, Palestine, Lebanon, Jordan and Southern Syria, but uncommon further North. This dish is so closely associated with Syrian food that it is also known as shâmiyât (شاميات ) or ‘Damascene’. This recipe, by Soheer J. from Sweida, is notable for its use of golden, turmeric-and-spice-infused basmati rice and its garnish of butter-fried walnuts. The dish is built up in layers of bread, rice, yogurt & tahini sauce, chicken, nuts, and garnishes. We will be preparing this dish in parts – crispy bread (dry), rice & chicken (to be warmed) and sauce (room temperature) separately, so they can be combined at the last moment for the best combination of flavours, temperatures and textures.
[vegetarian] Fatteh Hummus فتتة حُمُّص
Fatteh with crispy pita, seasoned rice, yogurt-tahini sauce and walnuts, with chickpeas and Cauliflower.
Tabbouleh تبولة‎‎
Originally from the mountains of Syria and Lebanon, tabbouleh has become one of the most popular salads in the Middle East. A fragrant herb salad, with parsley and mint, tomato and onion, with a scattering of bulgur, and seasoned with olive oil, lemon, and salt.
Zalabeh زلابية
Donuts are a universal language. Sticky sweet fried dough desserts can be found all over the world and this Syrian treat is right at the intersection of Greek loukoumades, Mexican churros and Indian jalebi. Flour dough tinted with turmeric, and flavoured with anise and mahlab (a almond-like spice made from cherry stones), fried until crispy and dunked in a wild honey syrup.

Newcomer Kitchen is a new project that invites groups of Syrian newcomer women to use our kitchen to cook traditional Syrian dishes in a fun, social setting. Meals are prepared and packaged, and then sold online for pickup or delivery to pay for all the ingredients and provide a source of revenue for the cooks.
We also offer “Guest Cook” spots on Wednesdays where you can help & hang out in the kitchen, learn the recipes and join the ladies for family meal. These can now be booked via AirBnB Experiences.
Proceeds from the sale of meals goes directly to the newcomer cooks. However this does not cover the costs of the enormous amount of behind-the-scenes coordination required to keep this project going. You can support the Newcomer Kitchen project directly and our vision of expanding this model to support more women in more neighbourhoods!
Help us take this idea into any restaurant kitchen, in any city in the world!
