Baklava, falafel and hummus are just a few traditional recipes one Syrian woman loves to whip up for sale at the Wagga markets.
It's almost that time of year where residents and visitors can eat as many dishes from around the world to their heart's content.
In the spirit of the upcoming Fusion Festival, The Daily Advertiser will be profiling some of the delicious cuisines that can be found in this city, and the people who can cook them with their eyes closed.
Myriam Yamak takes pride in her cooking and loves being able to showcase her culture's food.
"I came from Syria to here in 2012," she said.
"My daughter was having a baby, and she could not come back, and after the war in Syria, I could not come back.
"I love Wagga. I love the people here, they are very nice and gentle."
Baklava, falafel and hummus, za'atar, zucchini omelette, spinach based dishes, yabraq (stuffed grape leaves) and spiced fish are just a few of the recipes that Ms Yamak whips up.
"It makes me happy to cook," she said.
"I remember my family and I love to give people here what my family eat."
Ms Yamak added it was important for her to be able to share her culture in Wagga and ensure the cooking practices she knows are put to good use.
Belinda Crain, CEO of the Multicultural Council, said Ms Yamak is just one of the community members who they have helped to set up a business at the Riverina Producers' Market that runs every Thursday at the Wagga Showgrounds.
"We have been working with to support their food stalls at many other occasions," she said.
Fusion19 is on Saturday October 19 at the Victory Memorial Gardens from 4pm.
