Iraqi Recipes by ISP Students

The 11 young women and men working with the Iraqi Student Project in Damascus 2010-2011 put together, in most cases with their parents’ help, recipes for some of their favorite Iraqi cooking.  Students and parents also took most of the photographs.  The preparation of this PDF was done by two of these students, Ali Tahseen Abdulsamea and Ziad Al-Shamsie.  We hope you will discover some of Iraq’s fine tastes by using these pages.


The River, The Roof, The Palm Tree, 2012

In 2008 we began to gather and publish some of the best writing done by our Iraqi students in their weekly Writers’ Workshop. Twice now we have added new works by new student writers. The result: The River, The Roof, The Palm Tree: Young Iraqi Refugees Remember Their Home. A supplement, featuring the poetry and prose of the "Class of 2016" is now available. You may request copies by sending a donation and your mailing address to: The Iraqi Student Project, 5459 Rosa Avenue, St Louis MO 63109.
