Looking Back | Breaking Bread Course One: Afghanistan
About the Chefs
Jalal and Zakia are a husband a wife team who resettled in Richmond, Virginia in 2015. In Afghanistan, Jalal worked as a human resources manager and supported the U.S. mission against terrorism; doing so put him and his family in danger. With the support of the Richmond community and ReEstablish Richmond, Jalal is working as a workforce management analyst and Zakia is working as a tailor at a local bridal shop. They both dream of opening their own food truck or restaurant. Though accustomed to catering for large family and community gatherings, Breaking Bread is Jalal and Zakia's debut in sharing their food and culture with the Richmond food scene.
About the Menu
The Breaking Bread Afghan meal will be served family style, and it will be accompanied by a presentation and discussion of the power of food in Afghan culture.
