Full description

Taste incredible dishes lovingly prepared and shared with you by the refugee communities of Australia. Traditional recipes have come on long and sometimes perilous journeys from homes in Syria, Afghanistan, and Persia (Iran). Savor delicacies from around the world, and learn about new cultures.

Start the tour with a hearty Syrian breakfast and ice cream. Then, visit a local supermarket where you will try fresh and unique products such as dried figs. On the way to the next stop, you’ll see Afghani traditional clothing. Next, enjoy a quick stopover for Turkish street food and indulge in an Afghan feast that includes delicious grilled meat kebabs, fluffy and tasty flatbread, and dishes that are as marvelous as mantu (stuffed dumpling) can be. You will finish the tour with some traditional Persian sweets and spiced tea.
