The “Share My Plate" recipe book is a project that has grown out of weekly Tuesday night dinners that are run out of the Asylum Seeker Welcome Centre in Brunswick for asylum seekers and people connected with the Centre.
"Share My Plate" is a compilation of recipes from around the world that have been prepared at the dinners and each dish tells a story about culture, family and place.
For many people arriving in a new country, food and cooking not only provides the opportunity to maintain connection with home and family and friends, it also provides opportunities for people to build an identity for themselves and connection with other members of their community.
Recipes for meals from the countries of the people who attend or volunteer at the Centre, and the stories surrounding the preparation and sharing of those meals, provides Melbournians with opportunities to connect with the cultures of
MelbourneÙs newest residents, generating more opportunities for community connectedness.
