Sussex is nowadays home to a good number of Syrian families who have escaped the dangers in their home country to find sanctuary here. They bring with them elements of culture which it is a joy to share, such as their music, dance and food. This book has been compiled by Village of Sanctuary with contributions from many of these families as well as chefs who support our efforts, including the famous Yotam Ottolenghi, to share Syria’s culinary delights with their new neighbours in England, especially in Sussex. Any surplus its sales generate will be devoted to refugee support.
