Flavours of Hope

Download our free cookbook to connect with refugee families and get a taste of their culture.

Flavours of Hope celebrates the power of food to connect us all.

It showcases recipes and stories from 10 remarkable individuals – including those who have found safety in Australia, and those who are still living as refugees far from home.

From Ukraine to Sierra Leone – each recipe was selected by a current or former refugee to tell their story and share their culture. Inside, you’ll find delicious recipes for Vietnamese pho, Syrian sweets and more.

You can also choose to make a voluntary contribution after you download the book. Just $10 is enough to provide therapeutic food for a malnourished refugee child.
