About the Author

A big bowlful of delicious Palestinian recipes, plus lots of insightful and moving stories.--Yotam Ottolenghi
This is the best kind of cookbook, one which tells you about people through the stories of their food. Compelling reading, gorgeous pictures--and the most delicious recipes. I can't wait to start cooking.--Ruth Reichl
As a Palestinian who grew up in Jerusalem, I have been conditioned to be wary of any non-Palestinian trying to share our story and our culture with the world...Very quickly I found myself in tears at just how beautifully and accurately she has captured the essence of our Palestinian culture. Yasmin Khan you have done Palestinians and our story justice, your understanding of the nuances of our culture and history is unparalleled.--Reem Kassis, author of The Palestinian Table
Part cookbook and part travel journal, this work is full of recipes, photos, and stories from Palestine. It is bright in flavour and colour and will teach you about this incredible nation through dishes like slow-cooked stews of chicken and lamb flavored with Palestinian barahat spice blends
Yasmin Khan draws on her vast experience as a storyteller, cook, human rights activist, itinerant traveler and writer to create a moving, empathetic, hugely knowledgeable and utterly delicious book.--Anthony Bourdain
Excellent...Khan's cookbook is a thoroughly enjoyable exploration of the region's food and culture.
