Add the lentils, rice and freekeh and stir to toast all the grains for two minutes before mixing in the ground cumin, one tablespoon of the safflower, the black pepper, ground coriander, tomato purée and two teaspoons of salt.

From sweet and spongy cinnamon buns with strong cups of coffee to fresh local seafood, there is no shortage of culinary delights in Oslo. Imad Alarnab was a successful restaurateur in Damascus with three restaurants, plus several juice bars and cafes.Amidst the recipes are essays about his love of Damascus, his love for his wife and daughters, and a moving piece about his beloved mother who died shortly after he left Damascus. An entry midway through sees him reflecting on his relationship with his mother, who died in Syria less than two months after he arrived in the UK. This was served with sahan khudra, otherwise known as the green plate – Turkish green peppers, onion, herbs, spring onion and so on, the idea is that you help yourself to items from the green plate while eating your meal. Only one recipe had an ingredient I was not able to get: sour cherry molasses for the ‘Saroja’ (fried baby aubergines with cheeses).

This book will weave Imad’s unique and compelling story with recipes that are inspired by his love of his two homes: Damascus and London. Imad Alarnab is a refugee whose courage and fortitude have enabled him to set up a new life in the UK.

He will also share his incredible personal story and demonstrates that food has the power to bring us all together.
