Abdul Jabbar-Amanula fled Myanmar aged 12 as a Rohingya refugee, fearing for his life. He has not seen his mother since. He and his wife Rehana Zafa Ahmed now live in Chicago, along with a few hundred other Rohingya who have escaped persecution in their homeland. The couple tell Emily Thomas how food connects them to the people and the home they left behind, and how they are trying to prevent Rohingya cuisine from disappearing.
