Make Sunday Special Event

On Sunday 24th July volunteers from the Palestine Museum and Cultural Centre joined with other local fairtrade groups and businesses to help Make Sunday Special with street stalls lining both sides of Corn Street in central Bristol.

Alongside a busy stall promoting the Museum and selling Zaytoun fairly traded products, the Museum volunteers had prepared a Tomato Bulgar Wheat dish , Mahammara (a chilli hot side dish) and stuffed vine leaves for sale to raise funds. The dishes were very popular and attracted passers-by to the stall.

For a video clip of cooking demo, and some photos...

We also took part in a demonstrating how these dishes were made to an attentive audience and were able to explain how the bulgar wheat (a cheap and easily available staple food) in particular had sustained Palestinians in the bleak months immediately after the Nakba in 1948. We hope to be back at the next Make Sunday Special event in due course.
