This cookbook, and the affiliated documentary film also titled Soufra, by Rebelhouse Studios, accompanies Mariam Shaar on her journey of empowerment by developing a thriving business that employs the incredible women of the Burj el-Barajneh refugee camp in Lebanon.
Not only does this cookbook share some of the most treasured recipes that changed the lives of the Soufra women, but it also will give back to the families at the camp. The women of Soufra, through WPA, are full partners in the publication of this book. They will share equally in proceeds from its sales, which will contribute to the ongoing development of the camp’s Children’s Center and to building a school for the children in the camp.
"Soufra, the film, left me inspired, hopeful, and desperate to taste every tantalizing dish so lovingly presented in the movie. This book makes it possible to do that while supporting the heroic women who created them - a fortifying book on every level.”
- Mary Louise Parker
"A stunning book capturing the heritage of these incredible women."
