We are delighted that Razan Alsous, founder of the award winning “squeaky cheese company, Yorkshire Dama, is joining the the ever expanding list of guest chefs to bring to the School the flavours of of her home country Syria.

A note from Razan:

“We came to the UK after the war in Syria in 2012. With my husband and three young children, we had lost almost everything and had to settle into a new life in Yorkshire.

Initially, I began searching for a job but despite having a pharmacy degree and a scientific background my lack of references and work history in the UK made it extremely difficult.

After some time I started to look at other options and what was around me – the expertise I could tap into, the sources of support and other opportunities available to me.

As I couldn’t find a great tasting quality squeaky cheese anywhere in the supermarkets or local shops I had a brainwave: why not create a business and make myself Syrian cheese from fresh high-quality British milk!

And so started our journey and after just four months of production, we won the WORLD CHEESE AWARD Bronze prize highlighting the true quality of our cheese.”

Razan will guide you through a traditional Syrian Meze whilst exploring the flavours of her home country.
