A young woman is writing down refugees' cooking recipes along with their shocking stories, making an unusual cookbook. To her, tastes of childhood and trajectories of food and wars are intertwined. On this journey she meets a Tunisian chef who seeks asylum in Croatia and a 22-year-old Syrian girl trying to build a new home. Can the language of food tell the story of what is long gone?
Tastes of home have been investigated and recorded over several years. For over ten years we are meeting people in search of safety and happiness. Some of these stories about the search for a better life have been recorded in this book.
