shorkk xmas gifts

To make choosing easier we've put together some Christmas ideas, in gift boxes and bags. But we're equally happy to make up bespoke boxes or bags, email with your requests.

seasonal eating

Need a recipe for a savoury biscuit? Try our za'atar cheesy biscuits made with sumac and za'atar mix - perfect with a festive glass or two! The aromatic fragrance of oregano in Bassatin Baanoub's za'atar mix is a welcome reminder of summer in your December kitchen!
If you're looking for festive dishes, a bulgur wheat salad with a pomegranate molasses dressing might be the answer. No cooking involved, plenty of texture and tang, certainly one to brighten up a winter's day.

Gaza Hospital

This December we are offering 50% of our sales to Najdeh Association in Lebanon. While hospitals in Gaza are being bombed, this hospital in Beirut has its own story.

The trauma of what's happening in Palestine, along with Lebanon's economic collapse, has far reaching consequences for those who live in Gaza Hospital.

"In the Shadow of Beirut"

Stephen Gerard Kelly sums up the documentary "In the Shadow of Beirut", with the words "life and love". As one of the directors, he feels privileged to have been invited into the homes of Palestinians to make this compassionate record about life in this area of Beirut.

As part of the Bristol Palestine Film Festival, there's a showing at Watershed on Saturday 9th December at 5pm.

the cost of war for farmers

The destruction of agricultural land in the south of Lebanon by Israeli drone strikes has dire consequences for the agricultural economy of the south. Michelle Eid's article for The Tahrir Institute for Middle East Policy details the extent of the impact on farmers in the south.
