The Kitchen Without Borders

The Kitchen Without Borders is a special kind of cookbook. In it, chefs from around the world—all part of Eat Offbeat, a catering company staffed by immigrants and refugees who have found a new home and new hope through cooking—offer up to 70 authentic, surprising, nourishing recipes. The food has roots that run as deep as its flavours, celebrating the culinary traditions of Syria, Iran, Eritrea, Venezuela, and more.

Discover Iraqi Biryani, a rice dish combining vegetables and plump dried fruits with warming spices. Chari Bari, hand-formed meatballs simmered in Nepali-spiced tomato and cashew sauce. Iranian rice with garbanzos, Sri Lankan curry dhal, and Manchurian cauliflower straight from the Himalayas.
