"Food brings us together" is the underlying theme of the TEDxSydney 2016 food program. The program celebrates home cooking, the sharing of traditional family food and recipes, as well as all the stories behind them. We asked members of the TEDxSydney community to share recipes close to their heart, and these are the results. Every recipe has a story, and it’s these stories that bring us together and keep us connected both to each other and to our heritage.

Cevapcici with Ajvar (aka Kofta w. capsicum relish) - Recipe by Silvana Griffin: "The most delicious combo - the cornerstone of our family’s heritage all around the world for who knows how long.
