This event is now sold out.

Join us for the first Flavours of Hope’s pop-up community dinner which celebrates food, culture, and stories in neighbourhoods. Come and enjoy traditional cuisine created by three newcomer chefs: Hayat and Carmen, a Syrian mother and daughter, and Angeles from Mexico. The evening will be a time of eating together and learning about the unique stories and cultures of these talented women.

The menu features a delicious range of traditional Syrian and homestyle Mexican dishes including: fol mudammas (traditional Damascus fava bean dish), madfouneh (bulgur with chicken), mutabal (roasted eggplant), hummus, pozole (traditional Mexican soup), enfrijoladas, enmoladas (enchiladas), pico de gallo (with avocado) and baclava.

We will hear about the development of Flavours of Hope and its vision to provide a living wage and social connections for immigrant and refugee women. Together we can build more vibrant, diverse and welcoming neighbourhoods for newcomers and Canadians.
