About #BakeForSyria …

  • Started by Lily Vanilli as an offshoot of the award-winning #CookForSyria campaign founded by Clerkenwell Boy and Serena Guen (founder of Suitcase Magazine and Unicef UK s ambassador for Next Generation London).
  • #BakeForSyria first event took place in the famous Columbia Road London and has since capture the minds of school children, professionals and chefs all over the world Leveraging the power of social media, top chefs, cookbook authors and families with links to Syria were encouraged to get involved by sharing their favourite recipes online with a #CookForSyria inspired twist so that anyone could host their own charity supper club at home, bake sale or just learn about the amazing cuisine and culture of Syria.
  • As Syrian and Middle Eastern inspired recipes flooded in, it made sense to share these beyond social media and in the form of a beautiful not for profit recipe book.
