Overview

A dazzling cookbook with vibrant recipes, captivating stories and stunning photography from Palestine `A moving, hugely knowledgeable and utterly delicious book' Anthony Bourdain 'A big bowl-full of delicious Palestinian recipes, plus lots of insightful and moving stories... Great stuff' Yotam Ottolenghi 'A zingingly evocative collection of personal stories... Calling it a cookbook does it a disservice. Zaitoun deserves to be read as much as cooked from' Observer Food Monthly Bursting with the freshness and brightness that is characteristic of all Levantine cuisine, Palestinian food is fragrant, healthy and delicious. From a colourful array of bountiful mezze dishes to rich slow-cooked stews flavoured with aromatic spice blends, it's a cuisine that represents the very best of modern Middle Eastern cookery. In this beautiful Palestinian cookbook, food writer Yasmin Khan shares recipes and stories from her travels through the region. On her journey she harvests black olives from the groves of Burquin in the West Bank, hand-rolls maftool - the plump Palestinian couscous - in home kitchens in Jenin and even finds time to enjoy a pint with workers at the Taybeh brewery, which is producing the first Palestinian craft beer. As she feasts and cooks with Palestinians of all ages and backgrounds, she learns about the realities of their everyday lives. Zaitoun includes herb-filled salads, quick pickles, fragrant soups, tender roasted meats and rich desserts, and has a special focus on vegetarian versions of Palestinian classics. It has recipes for olive, fig and honey tapenade, roast chicken stuffed with pine nuts and raisins, and pomegranate passion cake, among many others. And surrounding the recipes, there is a chorus of stories from those who love, live and cook with Palestine in their hearts.

A big bowl-full of delicious Palestinian recipes, plus lots of insightful and moving stories... Great stuff -- Yotam Ottolenghi This is a politically engaged and hungry travelogue, and it is also an inspirational recipe book, and one that anyone who loves food will want to cook from, will need to cook from -- Nigella Lawson Yasmin Khan draws on her vast experience as a storyteller, cook, human rights activist, itinerant traveller and writer to create a moving, empathetic, hugely knowledgeable and utterly delicious book. Her essays, this food and these photographs give voice to the generous Palestinian people who welcomed her into their homes, to teach and share recipes from a cuisine that has both adapted and endured through decades of diaspora and political strife. The food you'll cook using her recipes is fresh, bright, simple, colorful and deeply satisfying; the stories you'll read will deepen your understanding of an all-too-often misunderstood place and culture -- Anthony Bourdain A zingingly evocative collection of personal stories and 80 recipes from Palestinian kitchens.
