Chicago seems to breed the most amazing people who are constantly breaking barriers and putting on for the city. Meet Abeer Najjar, a Palestinian-American cook and food lover from the Southside of Chicago. Abeer’s new-age cooking is inspired by her mother’s traditional dishes but also the diverse communities she grew up in. Through this short documentary, Abeer shows us the power of love through food and reminds us that our history and experiences are valid and worth sharing.
