In 2021 the IRC held cooking workshops for refugee and Greek women living on the island of Lesvos in Greece. The workshops became a meeting point for different people, cultures, stories and memories. It promoted common experiences and mutual understanding through the universal language of food. 

The recipes shared, personal to the women who took part in the workshops, have been collected together as part of this cookbook. We hope you find a special recipe in this cookbook, from Afghanistan, Burundi, Cameroon, Greece, Iran, South Africa or Syria. They are all Recipes from Home.
