Info

Haifa, a Syrian refugee living in London, teaches her first public cooking class to a group of young Europeans in London at the founder of Migrateful's home. Here Haifa and her "students for the night" share a meal of falafel and molokhiyeh, a dish made of chicken and bitter greens. While she enjoyed the evening and laughed throughout, she said that when she sat down to eat, she remembered and missed the meals her family would share in Syria. Migrateful is a cultural exchange designed to help refugee chefs like Haifa integrate, and practice English, while at the same time introducing Brits to migrants, fostering appreciation of the culture that they're bringing to the United Kingdom in a time of increasing anti-refugee sentiment across the country.
