Parwana: Becoming an Adelaide Icon description
Parwana Afghan Kitchen opened in Adelaide in 2009 with a vision to share Afghan cuisine and culture. It swiftly became a beloved part of the city, attracting national acclaim for its food and welcoming atmosphere. In Parwana: Recipes and Stories from an Afghan Kitchen, Durkhanai Ayubi tells of her family’s journey from Afghanistan to Adelaide. Her mother’s recipes are interwoven with vivid stories of a homeland of rich histories, generous hospitality, and the celebration of the ritual of preparing and sharing food.
