The Gaza Kitchen- Laila El-Haddad

SKU: v9781935982272

The Gaza Kitchen: A Palestinian Culinary Journey is a full-colour cookbook which serves as an introduction to daily life in the embattled Gaza Strip: a visit to the intimate everyday spaces which never appear in the news.

Over 120 fully kitchen-tested recipes present the enticingly herby, peppery, lemony tastes of Gazan home-cooking, largely unknown to outsiders, while conversations with cooks, farmers, economists and others provide an extraordinary glimpse into daily life for the 1.7 million inhabitants of the isolated enclave.

This award-winning cookbook by Laila El-Haddad and Maggie Schmitt shares with readers the little-known but distinctive cuisine of the Gaza region of Palestine, presenting 130 recipes collected by the authors from Gaza. Avid cooks will find in The Gaza Kitchen great, kitchen-tested recipes for Gaza’s many spicy stews, piquant dips, fragrantly flavored fish dishes, and honey-drenched desserts. But they will also be entranced by the hundreds of beautiful photos of Gazan cooks, farmers, and fresh-produce merchants at work, and by the numerous in-kitchen interviews in which these women and men tell the stories of their food, their heritage, and their families.
