Typically cuisine is not the first thing to come to mind when people think of Syria, Afghanistan, or Tibet. In Refugee Chef, each episode features real-life people who have escaped wars and civil strife, and survived impossible odds to make their own tale of rags to riches come true. Behind each dish are stories of survival as refugees seek freedom from society in conflict. The culinary diaspora of these countries are slowly changing perceptions by using food in a powerful way. We will see how they struggle to make new lives with their family recipes and how cities have been enriched by their presence.
