Afghan cuisine with Habib

“Hello, I am Habib from Herat, Afghanistan. I love Afghan and Persian traditional foods and i found it very interesting when my elders would talk to me about the different kind of  foods for different seasons. When I joined the army in Afghanistan and specially when i was in missions and military operations  (far away)  in desert or mountains we didn’t had foods properly (mostly it was frozen food or ready meals). Then one day I decided to try and cook my favourite fresh dishes and after a few times I managed to cook and i liked it. Then I used to cook for the others as well and they were very happy about that. Then i cooked for my family. My cookery experience was useful and helpful during my journey as well, i used to cook for myself and other refugees in Calais jungle. I love cooking and sharing the foods with the others and i love when people smile when they eat my food!”
