Winner ‘Best Arab Cuisine Book’ – Gourmand World Cookbook Awards 2016.
Showcasing the wide-ranging, vibrant and truly delicious dishes of this country and introducing you to traditional Palestinian methods, cooking style and flavours, this stunning cookbook is a tribute to family, cooking, and home. Packed full of old recipes that have been created with love and that bring people together in appreciation of the beauty of this rich heritage, it’s a celebration of real Palestinian food, cooked with the ingredients that Joudie’s mother and grandmother use, and their grandmothers used before them. Experience the wonderful flavors of Palestine through zingy fattet hummus (tangy yoghurt, chickpeas and hummus, served over toasted pita bread and drizzled in buttered pine nuts), satisfyingly spiced makloubeh (an upside down spiced rice dish with lamb neck and fried eggplant), eggplant and zucchini stuffed full with spiced and herbed lamb, and sublimely decadent awameh (honey dumplings) all accompanied by fresh mint tea and white coffee (not actually coffee at all, but a refreshing mix of water, orange blossom water and sugar). With gorgeous photography that evokes the vibrancy and romance of the country, immerse yourself in the stories and culture of Palestine through this enticing guide to the art of Palestinian cooking.
