Description

Imad Alarnab was a successful restaurant entrepreneur living in Syria. He had several popular restaurants, juice bars and cafes. But the war meant he had to flee and leave it all behind. Now living in the UK with his family, Imad is determined to make his dream of running his own restaurant again a reality.

For one week from 25th June, Imad and several guest chefs from London's top restaurants will be cooking at at 180 The Strand, hosted by The Store Kitchen.

Serving up some of Syria's most popular dishes, it will be a week of celebration of making ideas happen against the odds.

Imad will be cooking alongside a different guest chef each evening, serving a signature seasonal dish with a Syrian twist - inspired by the bestselling cookbook #CookForSyria. The participating chefs are from some of London's most exciting restaurants including The Barbary; Berber & Q; Caravan; Breddos Tacos and more!

There will be 60 covers per night in one sitting, all in support of #CookForSyria - an international fundraising initiative curated by Clerkenwell Boy and SUITCASE Magazine to preserve and celebrate Syrian culture amidst one of the largest humanitarian crisis of our time.

The campaign officially launched in London on 31 October 2016 and was followed by Sydney and Melbourne in February/March 2017 with the USA to launch in June 2017.

The initiative will encourage everyone from the UK's top chefs to people at home to cook and raise money in aid of UNICEF's Syria Relief fund. The initiative has been organised by Unicef's NEXTGeneration, a vibrant global community of leaders across sectors who raise funds for Unicef's work across the world, the funds from this project will go to support children in Syria & the region.

Guests will enjoy a welcome drink followed by a sharing feast with at least three courses, including signature dishes by Imad and our guest chefs. Veggie options available on request. Welcome drink is included but please bring cash for additional drinks, to be paid at the bar.

For the Sunday brunch, Imad will be cooking alongside guest chef Miles Kirby from Caravan.
