The Flavours of Somalia meal will be delivered to your home on Saturday August 1st. Given we cannot meet in person we thought a lovely dinner during Heritage Weekend would be a way to celebrate food and culture with our community.  

·         The food will be prepared by the hosts from Somalia according to their traditional recipes and the wisdom of generations of family cooks.

·         You will receive access to a short video from the hosts sharing info on their culture.

·         Food will be prepared in a commercial kitchen that meets all the safety requirements required during this time of COVID.

·         The well-known and respected Chef Cindy Lazarenko will provide all planning, oversight and direction to the layout of the kitchen and the food preparation.

·         Chef Cindy Lazarenko has been an owner/chef/manager of both an independent restaurant and catering businesses for over 15 years, including the award winning Culina Highlands Restaurant and Culina Restaurants and Catering.
