Some flavours became very far away, and some ingredients became difficult to obtain after they were readily available. The Syrians changed the form of their relationship with their kitchen after the war, the Syrian cuisine has become a kind of nostalgia. Its smell and taste are related to our pre-war life and remind us of our innocent childhood. The Syrians took their kitchen taste, and the idea of serving Syrian food was not just food to be eaten.
