The Healthy Arabic & Community Kitchen Recipe Book

The women play a major role in family life from shopping, preparing and cooking meals. Cooking in the Arabic community is considered an art in its own right and they take great pride in their hospitality, and teaching traditional recipes from grandmothers to grand-daughters generation after generation. The Healthy Arabic Women Community Kitchen planned and cooked traditional Arabic meals while exploring options to make the meals healthier for their families. The program ran weekly for three terms from June to December 2013. The program was funded and supported by the Food Security Program in Health Promotion, in South Western Sydney and Sydney Local Health District. The Food Security Program promotes access to healthy and affordable meals.
