Written By Guest Writer Causes / Chefs / Folks Mar 16, 2016 Syrian-Inspired Dinner at Cook Culture to Help A New Victoria Family SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter PinterestOne chef, three hours, seven dishes, and an exciting introduction to Syrian cooking. Well known local Chef Cosmo Meens is pairing up with Cook Culture in Victoria to assist a Syrian family of six who are due to arrive in Victoria soon.Chef Meens will conduct a cooking demonstration and dinner with lots of information and camaraderie. Says Meens, “ I didn’t know much about Syrian cooking before taking on this dinner but I recognized the style of cuisine as Mediterranean and it has similarities to Turkish food. It’s delicious, complex and balanced. I’ll be cooking and asking for audience participation. As well, a member of the Gordon Head Refugee Sponsorship Group will speak briefly at the beginning of the evening.”Working with the Gordon Head Refugee Sponsorship Constituent Group, Cook Culture and Chef Meens are working with the community to make our new neighbours welcome. What better way to learn about a person’s culture than by learning about what they eat?The event takes place on April 1 and runs from 6 – 9pm. There are only a couple of places left for this very special fundraising event. Each ticket is $100. A full meal and wine will be served. Meens indicated that if there were enough interest they would consider adding another dinner.For more information about the Demonstration, visit the Cook Culture website at www.cookculture.com.
