Recipes for Refuge: Culinary Journeys to America

Hardcover.

This book is currently available for pre-order. Signed copies will be available for shipping and instore pickup on November 15, 2019.

Recipes for Refuge is a delicious and unique collection offering readers an experience that transcends mere cookery. First, the food. These are the recipes that are passed down from mother to daughter, father to son, recipes that connect these global refugees to the place they once called home. Transport yourself with Salomé’s Patacones con Hogoa, Sookjai’s Golden Triangle Chicken Curry, Mahnaz’s Pomegranate Khoresh, or Rahima’s Bariis—the famed rice dish of Somalia—accompanied by gorgeous full-color photographs. Included too are the journey stories of these transplanted cooks, tracing harrowing flight from Saigon as it falls, years spent in Kenyan refugee camps, and dangerous border crossings to escape the Eritrean-Ethiopian conflict, with stunning portraits that reveal the faces behind the term “refugee.” Most importantly, Recipes for Refuge celebrates and supports Refugee Women’s Alliance, founded by and for refugee women, including many of the cooks featured here.

Established in 1985, ReWA is a non-profit, multi-ethnic organization that promotes inclusion, independence, personal leadership, and strong communities by providing refugee and immigrant women and their families with culturally and linguistically appropriate services. Visit rewa.org to learn more.
