Particularly for those away from home, familiar food and the process of preparing it are a source of continued identity, an umbilical cord to home. Those who land up at the cookers in the kitchen of an asylum seekers hostel, come from troubled corners of the globe, from places like Sri Lanka, Kosovo or the Gambia. And in these kitchens, their food and cultures meet.
