Nadeems Kabsa was one of our favourite dishes featured in Jimmy Shu's Taste of the Territory. 

Chef Nadeem Turkyah
An expert on culinary diplomacy

When we saw the trailer for Breaking Bread it was instantly clear that Nadeem had to be involved. His story resonates with the themes of the film - food bridging the divide and uniting people across countries and cultures - and his mouth watering cooking brings the spicy fusion of the Middle East from the film to your plate.
