In loving memory of Rachel Safdie 1914-2011

"Mehshi Kusa is the first in what I hope to be a series of inter-generational cooking webisodes. In this video, my grandmother, Rachel Safdie, who is of Syrian descent, teaches me to make Mehshi Kusa/Kusa Mahshi, or stuffed zucchini, a recipe that she learned from her mother that has never been written down. As the product of immigration and displacement like so many other Montrealers, food is one of the main ways that my family celebrates our roots, and my grandmother, now 95, is still the head chef."
