Food in Durham

Food is about more than just nourishing our bodies and keeping us healthy, it is about coming together after a long day and sharing our experiences with our friends and family. It plays a huge role in integrating diverse cultures into a new country and home and it can mean the difference between just existing and living life to its fullest.

In the merest moment, a whiff of a childhood favourite dish can bring happy memories of family and home. Sharing these memories and the foods of our backgrounds helps us all to learn about each other. There is no more common ground than food! However sometimes, finding the foods we are familiar with can be a challenge.
