HANDMADE is a cookbook that takes you on a journey of amazing food shared through the stories of 34 women – their struggle, hope & strength as they rebuild their lives after a 30 year conflict.

Accompanying these stories are their recipes that celebrate a rich food tradition, that speak of live and pulsate with resilience, that nourish, are filled with hope and in their making display a resourcefulness and ultimately survival.
