The queue that assembled for the sampling of Syrian cuisine was a boisterous one. People were dazzled by the beauty of the cuisines before them. It was an opportunity to agree or disagree with a comment made during the panels. People ate chicken, beef and rice. This was flushed down with a special collection of assorted northern drinks, kunun zaki, kunun tsamiya and zobo. Their faces were lit with glee. It was a space for laughter and warmth.
