The Immigrant Cookbook: celebrating migration through food

MRN is pleased to be a partner in the UK release of The Immigrant Cookbook, a beautifully produced compendium of recipes by over 75 migrant chefs from around the world.

The chefs each contribute a favourite recipe that speaks of where they come from. Along with their hopes and dreams, they brought valuable gifts: recipes from their homelands that have transformed the way we eat.

Contributors include Jamaican musician, Ziggy Marley, and Barbara Abdeni
Massaad, author/compiler of Soup for Syria: Recipes to Celebrate Our Shared Humanity.

The book is published by New Internationalist, an independent, not-for-profit media co-operative promoting global justice. 

You can buy the cookbook now in hardcover (£20) from the New Internationalist’s Ethical Shop (https://ethicalshop.org/the-immigrant-cookbook-by-leyla-moushabeck.html). 

It will be available in all Waterstones stores from 21 June, and to order from all other UK bookshops.

Here’s what these amazing chefs have to say about the book:

‘Recipes tell two stories: the story of how to make a meal and the story of the people who have made it over time. The Immigrant Cookbook is a vital reminder and celebration of these two stories.’

The Immigrant Cookbook is a beautiful book full of mouthwatering recipes that will appeal to all food lovers regardless of where they live or where they are from. I am so excited to start cooking from it.’
