MyGreat Cookbook

MyGreat Cookbook is a partnership with UN Human Rights and Nik’s Fudo to celebrate the culinary journeys and experiences of women chefs who have migrated. In this book, migrant women chefs share their recipes and their stories of migration and how food has shaped their personal journeys.

Recipes are like stories. They hold a shared history, enriched by the people and ingredients that lent them their unique flavours over time and space. By sharing these recipes, we strengthen the stories that bring us together and we find ways to welcome people into our communities, to reimagine our collective future.

“That’s where you find that type of common ground even when you are from the other side of the world,” says Teresa, a chef and a cookbook contributor.

Download the cookbook in PDF format, plan a dinner party and enjoy the recipes from our migrant chefs:

  • I will respect your rights regardless of who you are. I will uphold your rights even when I disagree with you
  • When anyone’s human rights are denied, everyone's rights are undermined, so I will stand up
  • I will raise my voice. I will take action. I will use my rights to stand up for your rights.
