Newcomer Kitchen "Willing to Work" is back… just in time for the holidays!

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to support newcomer women this holiday season by purchasing a festive Holiday Gift Bag. Join in the holiday spirit and celebrate diverse newcomer women living all across Toronto and Mississauga, bringing you delicious traditional favourites from our locations at Mustard Seed Fontbonne Ministries, Greenest City, and Arbour Mill Pathway. Holiday Gift Bags are prepared, packaged, and then sold online for pickup to pay for all the ingredients and provide some money for the participants.

Enjoy a selection of sweet treats and savoury favourites from the womens’ country of origin, including Syria, Palestine, India, Nepal, Egypt, Tibet, and Sudan.

These Holiday Gift Bags make for great gifts for your family, friends, teachers, employees, and more!

Newcomer Kitchen’s Holiday Gift Bags will feature:

Maamoul- a widely enjoyed and beautiful Syrian cookie with a variety of fillings, dating back to ancient Arab times and enjoyed during Eid, "Festival of Breaking the Fast". We have created a walnut and an apricot version. Maamoul are typically made with special wooden moulds or decorative tongs.


Date Balls- a nutrient dense treat that is also traditionally enjoyed to break fast during Ramadan. Date balls are filled with protein and healthy fats, providing energy. Our date balls are topped with shredded coconut, pistachio, and rose petal, proving to be an extra special and beautiful treat.


Khapse- a sweet and crispy Tibetan cookie where dough is rolled and then shaped into beautiful and intricate designs, then fried and dusted with sugar. Most prominently enjoyed at special occasions such as “Losar,” the Tibetan New Year's celebrations, weddings, and religious events, to bring good luck.


Spiced Olives- a staple in Arab cuisine, spiced olives pair perfectly with home cooked meals, side dishes, mezze platters, and more. Olives are rich in nutrients, and known to be one of the healthiest foods in the world. These olives are made with garlic, lemon, and spices, for a complex flavour that will leave you wanting more.


Pickled Turnips- made popular in Middle Eastern cuisine, these naturally beet-pink turnips combine a distinct crunch and tangy vinegar taste that is positively addicting. A perfect addition to compliment your falafel, gyro, roast chicken, and favourite holiday meal.


Red Chili Paste- a sambal-like condiment with complex flavours such as cumin, coriander, black pepper yerma, ginger, garlic, and chilli flakes; this red chilli paste packs a punch. With distinct warming qualities, you will want to serve this sambal-like condiment with nearly everything… especially momos.


Tsering’s Tibetan Tea- this tea blend calms the nerves, reduces tension, refreshes, and gives the body new energy. The tea helps disorders such as back pain, mental instability, anger and insomnia. Drink a cup in the evening, after a hectic day, or at any time!


Sfouf mix- a widely known Lebanese cake consumed on special occasions such as birthdays, holidays, and family reunions. A unique flavour combining ingredients such as turmeric, sugar, drizzled with honey and sprinkled with pistachio, you’ll soon add sfouf into your celebratory treat repertoire. With our sfouf mix, you can easily recreate this recipe at home… taste test approved!


Pita Chips and Fattoush spice- Fattoush salad is an admired Middle-Eastern salad topped with toasted or fried pita chips and a freshness of flavour largely due to the dressing’s complexity. With Newcomer Kitchen’s pita chips and fattoush spice, you can create your own fattoush salad to enjoy any time.


Seham’s Syrian Soup Mix- a classic, thick, golden, hearty and energy-dense soup to keep you warm and going on a cold day. From our kitchen to your table, you can enjoy this Syrian lentil soup at home with your loved ones.
