A culinary journey to Bethlehem, this evocative book brings a taste of Palestine to your kitchen

The beautifully spiced "upside-down" dish, Maqlouba, and rosewater-scented ma'moul date cookies are just some of the perfect dinner party recipes in Bethlehem that have been handed down through generations of Palestinians. From healthy, warming soups to mouth-watering, syrupy "helwa" sweets, the authors have gathered recipes and interviews from the residents of Aida refugee camp, Bethlehem to give the reader a glimpse into daily life there as Palestinian land and culture is being rapidly eroded. This beautiful cookbook features the well-loved Palestinian recipes for breads and pastries; meze salads and dips, vegetable dishes and a range of interesting ways to cook and stuff leaves such as vine and mallow leaves. Includes metric measures.


"[a] unique cookbook to add to anyone's library."—Broken Teepee  

"A heartwarming culinary paean to Palestine and the city of Bethlehem."—Publishers Weekly
