Description

Join us for Sanctuary Kitchen and SGARR's Syrian Supper Club! Enjoy an evening of authentic Syrian cuisine and conversation. Guests and Syrian refugees will gather together in an intimate setting to break bread – come share stories, develop cultural understanding, form connections and build community.

Guests will enjoy a delicious meal prepared by Syrian cook, Mona, who resettled in New Haven as a refugee in February 2017 with her mother and daughter from Syria. Mona learned to cook early in her childhood from her mother while living in Damascus. She loves Damascene food, and says that she "cooks from her heart." Her favorite dishes to cook are traditional Damascene mezzeh (such as hummus, baba ghanoush, muhamarra, and salads) and also classic main dishes that are loved by all (such as zucchini & yogurt stew, kibbeh, and stuffed grape leaves). She thinks Connecticut is very beautiful, and that people in New Haven are kindhearted and welcoming. She is excited to share her cuisine!

For this evening, Mona will be preparing her Damascene specialities:

Appetizers - Tabbouleh (parsely salad - V), Hummus (V), Mutabal (smokey eggplant & yogurt -V ), Potato Salad (V)
Main Entrees: Kibbeh (bulgur croquettes filled with meat and nuts), Yalangi (stuffed vegetables - V), Shish Barak (Meat Dumplings in Yogurt Sauce)
Dessert: Maamoul (Semolina shortbread cookies filled with dates or nuts) and Arabic coffee

No children under age 12 please. Sanctuary Kitchen facilitators will be present to assist the dinner party.

The suggested ticket is $50 per person. All proceeds are used to compensate Mona and support the cost of materials.
