Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Tray-baked potatoes with chicken (Seneyat batata ma' dajaj)

    • Astrid5555 on May 28, 2018

      Substituted boneless, skinless chicken thighs for the chicken breasts and cut the potatoes into thin slices. Baked at 390 degrees without covering with foil and the whole dish was ready in 35 minutes instead of the 1 1/2 hours stated in the recipe. As such weeknight friendly and both kids loved it! Will repeat.

  • Cucumber and yoghurt (Khiar bilaban)

    • mjes on April 20, 2018

      This raita is distinct because of its use of garlic - a pantry staple so its not apparent from the ingredients list. To my taste, raw garlic added enough of a distinctive bite as to make the raita less versatile. Probably not something I'll repeat.

Publishers Text

From healthy, warming soups to mouth-watering, syrupy "helwa" sweets, the authors have gathered recipes and interviews from the residents of Aida refugee camp, Bethlehem, to give the reader a glimpse into daily life there as Palestinian land and culture is being rapidly eroded. This beautiful cookbook features the well-loved Palestinian recipes for breads and pastries; meze salads and dips, vegetable dishes and a range of interesting ways to cook and stuff leaves such as vine and mallow leaves. All monies raised from the sales of this book will go to Alrowwad Centre for Arts and Culture, in the heart of Aida refugee camp, a camp born out of the nakba in 1948, it abuts the wall that slices through their land. Established in 1998 by Dr Abdelfattah Abusrour and friends, this centre offers the women and youths of the camp and beyond a chance to develop a skill and escape the daily violence and imprisonments in Palestine. The ethos of the centre is to give hope to the people of the camp and that "beautiful resistance" to daily occupation through theatre and the arts is one step towards a better future.
