The project combats social isolation by enabling people to make new friendships and at the same time they learn healthy cooking and catering skills and share recipes from their home countries. Expect mouth watering and delicious toasted wraps with a range of exotic vegetarian and vegan fillings served with salads and relishes.

Do try and pop down and try one of the delicious toasted wrap meals! Feedback on tastings so far have been excellent.

Our refugees and asylum seekers insist you learn: How to make a tomato and cheese toastie.
