Syrian Kitchen/Newcomer Kitchen

Sold at Herb & Spice Food Shop on 375 Bank St, Ottawa

“Newcomer Kitchen, as it’s known, started informally in March, when The Depanneur’s owner discovered many Syrian refugees were being housed temporarily in Toronto-area hotels without access to kitchens to cook for their families.”

““Since I was used to the idea of other people using my kitchen, the idea came up: why not let these people come in and use the kitchen when we are not using it,” said Len Senater.”

Once the women and their families got settled into permanent homes, the cooking continued. And it’s become a business.
