During the months of April & May 2005, a series of cooking festivals were launched in the villages of Aarsal, Kfar Nabrakh, Kuakh in addition to the urban community: Burj el Barajni Palestinian refugee camp where women from the communities were invited to present dishes based on wild edible plants. The purpose of these festivals was to collect the traditional wild edible plants recipes, inspect their healthy aspects and promote the consumption of the wild edible plants in our daily diet. Those recipes were collected and standardized to be published in a cookbook to reach the widest margin of people interested in healthy food and healthy eating habits.

Aarsal Festival 

The cooking festival was held in Aarsal on the 7th of April 05. An AUB team along with a Future TV team took pictures, shot scenes and interviewed women who cooked recipes with wild edible plants. The festival took place in the “Aarsal Rural Cooperative”.

Kueikh Festival

The cooking festival was also held in Kuakh on the 9th of April 2005 in the village municipality to meet with potential assistant cooks for the healthy kitchen component of the project. The event was similar to the one held in Aarsal: a group of women from the village cooked dishes  from wild edible plants and an AUB team collected the recipes and the names of the plants 

Kfar Nabrakh Festival
