Utilising the powerful language of food, one Yazidi family have built a life for themselves in Wagga.
It's almost that time of year where residents and visitors can eat dishes from around the world to their heart's content.
In the spirit of the upcoming Fusion Festival, The Daily Advertiser is profiling some of the delicious cuisines that can be found in this city, and the people who can cook them with their eyes closed.
Diyana Gundor and her family arrived as refugees to Wagga in 2017 as part of a wave of Yazidi refugees to arrive in Australia following a campaign of genocide by ISIS in Northern Iraq.
An avid cook, Ms Gundor built her confidence to the point where she was able to open a food stall at the weekly Riverina Producer's Market, selling their traditional flatbread among other dishes.
"We make the bread with flour and yeast and salt and leave it for one day," she said.
"After that, we roll it out and put in the oven."
Ms Gundor and her loved ones had to flee their homes as the Yazidi people were being murdered.
"My family wasn't safe in Iraq," she said. "Lots of our family and friends were killed by ISIS.
"It is great living in Australia, and I love it here, thank you so much to everyone."
On the menu at their stall is often Middle Eastern chicken, dolma, chickpea soup and other delicious, traditional dishes.
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.
Headlining are Kardajala Kirridarra, Thandi Phoenix, Hot Potato Band and Big Sky Mountain. Council's director of community Janice Summerhayes said Fusion has grown to be one of the city's biggest outdoor events.
