Complicité Cooks

Complicité Cooks is a series of food related events that celebrated cuisines from around the world and stories that go with them.

Complicité Cooks, Syria took place at Tara Arts Theatre in May as part of the I’ll Say it Again! Festival, a season of work by women artists. The evening celebrated Syrian culture with recipes and stories from the cookbook Syria Recipes from Home, accompanied by traditional Syrian music.

Friends and passionate cooks Dina Mousawi and Itab Azzam co-wrote Syria Recipes from Home, a cookbook that celebrates everything food and memory can mean to an individual, to a family and to a nation. The book was included in several Best Cook Books of 2017 lists, including Martha Stewart’s, The Guardian, The Times, London Evening Standard and many more. It received rave reviews on BBC Radio 4’s The Food Programme and Woman’s Hour.
