Recipes, stories and a virtual invitation to break the daily Ramadan fast, share food and experience, make virtual friends and celebrate the diversity of Muslim culture and heritage.
After the first date…
The world over, Muslims break their Ramadan fast with a date. But the meal on the table may be very different if you come from Pakistan or Palestine, Morocco or Malaysia, Iraq or Indonesia, Syria or Somalia, Egypt or Eritrea, Bosnia or Bangladesh, Lebanon or Libya… Our roots determine the culinary cultures we inherit, what we cook, whether traditionally we eat with our fingers, or with bread, or chopsticks, a spoon, or a fork… Our stories and conversations are different too.
A special thanks to Canterbury Bonkstown
Counsil for being major sponsor and for helping buil
a great community
City of Canterbury Bankstown, situated in southwest metropolitan Sydney, is the largest Council, by population, in NSW. More importantly, it is home to one of the most richly diverse and multicultural communities in the state. Since its creation in 2016, CBCity, under the leadership of Mayor Khal Asfour has been working towards delivering services for and supporting the community. Mayor Asfour has also championed the City’s rich diversity and mosaic of cultures that make Canterbury-Bankstown the unique place that it is. That includes taking part in hosting Sydney’s largest Ramadan Festival, Ramadan Nights Lakemba. The festival, in the spirit of Ramadan, brings everyone together not just from within the community, but from afar to enjoy food from around the world. Sadly, the festival can’t go ahead this year, that’s why CBCity is proud to support Recipes for Ramadan.
