Cooking Workshop: Armenian Infusion - Aleppo Cuisine

Armenian Infusion: Aleppo Cuisine is a cooking workshop took place on 7 November 2019 in Rethink Rebuild Society Centre in Longsight. It was a rare opportunity to taste the impact of history on gastronomy. In this hands on cooking workshop, participants learned and made two Armenian-Aleppean dishes following a recipe that can only be found the City of Aleppo and in the end they also shared a meal together.

This event is part of the third annual Celebrating Syria Festival that took place between 2 and 9 November 2019 and included 20 activities in different venues across Manchester. Considered one of the biggest if not the biggest of its kind in Europe, Celebrating Syria Festival aims to reflect the richness and diversity of Syrian heritage and culture.

It is the Syrians narrative about Syria! Where we as Syrians wish to change the narrative from that depicted in the media as one characterised by violence, pain and suffering, into one where Syria is seen as a country that, throughout history, has contributed immeasurably to human civilisation and world culture.
