  • Shakshuka

    • Avocet on May 07, 2021

      Easier to make than some other recipes for shakshuka I've done, and every bit as tasty. I did increase the cumin a bit. This will be my go-to recipe for shakshuka.

  • Baklawa

      I think there's an error in the recipe: it says to use 6"x8" sheets of filo, and to put a teaspoon of filling on the short end. When I did this, the baklawas were less plump than the photo in the book, and I had about 2/3 of the filling left over. The next day I made a batch with the remaining filling, and I put a tablespoon on the long end. This resulted in a fuller final product, much more pistachio-y. I'd also allow more than 30 minutes to roll these; I've cooked professionally and while I'm a little slower these days, I'm much faster than the average home cook and it took me closer to an hour. Maybe I'll just have to keep making them to get my speed up. :) The flavor is devastatingly good, and I look forward to making them again.

"Reading and cooking from this essential book - a thoughtful collection of great recipes, historical and cultural insights, and beautiful photographs - will move you closer to understanding this complex, fascinating part of the world." -- Anthony Bourdain
While interest in Middle Eastern cuisines has blossomed, the nuances and subtleties of Palestinian food are still relatively unexplored. In The Palestinian Table, Reem Kassis weaves together a tapestry of personal anecdotes, local traditions, and historical context, sharing with home cooks her collection of delicious, easy-to-follow recipes that range from simple breakfasts and speedy salads to celebratory dishes fit for a feast - giving rare insight into the heart and hearth of the Palestinian family kitchen.
