New on Middle Eastern and African Recipes


We are pleased to announce that the recipes from our new cookbook, Around the World at the Farmers' Market: Recipes from San Diego's African and Middle Eastern Community Cooks are now available on in English, Spanish, and Chinese!

This project was made possible through a collaboration with the International Rescue Committee San Diego, United Women for East African Support Team, and UC San Diego – Center for Community Health. We held cooking and tasting parties with Iraqi, North African, and East African community members to develop 32 recipes inspired by their culture's cuisine.

Throughout the process, we ensured that all recipes could be made on a limited budget and with produce available in the San Diego area. Additionally, many of the recipes include step-by-step photo directions to make them more accessible to a variety of readers. Printed copies of the cookbook in English will be available in early 2016.
