Welcome to our cookery class!
This cookery class will be taught by the wonderful Syrian chef Momo at the Migrateful Cookery School in London.

During our cookery class, each participant will be paired up and will have their own cooking station. Each station will be provided with the ingredients and equipment needed to prepare the dishes. The chef will then lead the group step-by-step through their recipes; stopping frequently to answer questions, share anecdotes, and provide feedback on the dishes. You will also be emailed the recipes after the class.
Momo’s cook-along dishes will be:
- Mujadara (Grains Dish)
- Salata (Arabic Salad)
- Mabrousheh (Syrian Biscuit)
This menu is Vegetarian. Allergens include: gluten, sesame seed, milk, nuts, eggs . Please let us know if you have any specific dietary requirements!
We will also be selling our beautiful Migrateful aprons! You can purchase them when booking your ticket (pick it up at the event) or before the cookery class starts at the venue. Please note we only accept card payments.
A message from our Chef Momo:
Hello, I’m Momo,
I’m the eldest son of a Palestinian father and a Syrian mother, I have six siblings who I love dearly. We grew up as Palestinian refugees in Daraa, a lovely city in southern Syria, which is also where the revolution started.
I later studied veterinary medicine in Hama city but unfortunately had to flee Syria right after I graduated. First I had to cross illegally to Turkey; it was one of the hardest experiences I’ve ever had to face, especially as I was alone, and at one point I thought it was the end. Surviving and successfully crossing gave me faith and a confidence in myself I didn’t realise that I had!
I went on to live in Istanbul, Turkey for three years until I finally came to the UK in mid 2019 through the UNHCR resettlement scheme.
After losing my father, my ambition became following in his footsteps and continuing some of his unfinished dreams, that’s why I’m working on establishing a Syrian cheese making business; just like the enterprise that he had when I was still in Syria.
I’ve always loved cooking ever since I was young. I used to experiment in the kitchen ever since I can remember. I’m always interested in exploring new flavours and trying new recipes. I believe that cooking is caring, dedicating your time and effort in making an enjoyable meal for your loved ones comes from the heart. I genuinely express my feelings and love through cooking. If you’re my friend, then you know I’ll have prepared something delicious for you every time we meet.
