Refugee Kitchens: From the 2017 Archives of the Salt Lake Tribune

Updated: Sep 19, 2022

When refugees immigrate to Utah, they arrive with little in the way of worldly goods. They do, however, bring their language, customs and recipes. In Refugee Kitchens, an ongoing series, The Salt Lake Tribune invited immigrants to cook dishes from their homelands as a window to their lives, as well as how they prepare food in a new culture.
