Full description
Taste incredible dishes lovingly prepared and shared with you by the newest additions to Australia. Traditional recipes have come on long and sometimes perilous journeys from homes in Syria, Afghanistan, and Persia (Iran). Savor delicacies made to keep these homelands alive in peoples’ hearts and bellies.

Start the tour with a hearty Syrian breakfast and ice cream. Then, visit a local supermarket where you will try fresh and unique produce 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 flat bread, 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.
