'New Roots, Old Recipes' celebrates the rich cultural cuisines and diverse flavours in Toronto only possible by immigrant chefs who now call this city their home. It focuses on the lives of four successful chefs: Nuit Regular, Maha Barsoom, Simone Lawrence and Gulshan Alibhai; who find connection to their home countries through cooking. These women share the importance of keeping these cherished recipes alive through many generations, while feeding those who also miss the sense of home. This short documentary demonstrates how food acts as a powerful catalyst for building connections and fostering a sense of community, no matter where one finds themselves.
