SYR­IAN POP-UP IS A TASTER OF AID WORK

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

IN part­ner­ship with World Jewish Relief, Zest at JW3 is to host its first pop-up meat restau­rant, Taste of Syria, with £1 from each meal go­ing to­wards WJR’s work with Syr­ian refugees.

Open­ing from March 6 to April 9, the restau­rant will be housed in a dome struc­ture in JW3’s pi­azza.

Tra­di­tional Syr­ian-Jewish dishes will be cooked on an out­side grill.

The kosher menu will in­clude lamb kofta, muhum­mara mar­i­nated chicken wings and saf­fron and or­ange mar­i­nated chicken, as well as veg­e­tar­ian op­tions. Din­ers will be served com­pli­men­tary car­damom coffee and mint tea.

Ac­com­pa­ny­ing events will in­clude the of­fi­cial launch night on March 16, high­light­ing the plight of those flee­ing war and per­se­cu­tion in Syria.

Paul An­ti­coni, WJR’s chief ex­ec­u­tive, said the part­ner­ship would also of­fer din­ers “in­sight into World Jewish Relief’s work with refugees, demon­strat­ing the dif­fer­ence we have made thanks to the com­mu­nity’s gen­eros­ity”.

Ray­mond Si­mon­son, his JW3 coun­ter­part, noted: “We have a rep­u­ta­tion for bring­ing the best of Is­raeli and Mid­dle Eastern cui­sine to the Jewish com­mu­nity. So our chefs are ex­cited to cre­ate a new menu in­spired by the flavours of Syria.”
