A Taste of Gaza: Food and Traditions from Home
By Lima Shawa
Lima Shawa celebrates Gazan traditions and cuisine in her new book:
"Before starting to write about food and traditions of Gaza, my home, I had a mixture of feelings: happiness, nostalgia, and laughter; yet also deep sadness. As I began, memories flooded back: events, family, neighbors, friends, and the wonderful smell of home."
The book opens with the celebrations, feasts and different seasons in Gaza. Lima Shawa shares Palestinian traditions and recipes full of fragrance, flavors and richness from her beloved Gaza.
*Shortlisted for the Palestine Book Awards 2021
Lima Shawa was born in Gaza and now lives in Amman. She has three children.
“Shawa’s recipes show that Gaza’s food epitomizes the Mediterranean diet by consisting mainly of healthy, affordable, popular preparations that are called “cucina povera” by Italians proud that their cuisine abounds in such dishes.”
