BEAUTIFULLY PHOTOGRAPHED CULINARY AND CULTURAL TOUR OF PALESTINE
Palestinian food is not just found on the
streets with the ka'ak (sesame) bread sellers and stalls
selling za'atar chicken and mana eesh (za'atar and sesame
bread), but in the home too; in the kitchens all across the country, where
families cook and eat together every day, in a way that generations before them
have always done. Palestine on a Plate is a tribute to family,
cooking, and home--old recipes created with love that brings people together in
appreciation of the beauty of this rich heritage. Immerse yourself in the
stories and culture of Palestine through the food in this book.
This is 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).
Colorful, stunning photography evoking the
vibrancy and romance of the country will bring Palestine into your home and
make you fall in love with this wonderful way to cook and enjoy food.
