Publishers Text

Bethlehem is a celebration of Palestinian food and culture from one of the area’s most dynamic chefs and a portrait of one of the most storied cities in the world.

Fadi Kattan celebrates the hidden parts of Bethlehem, conjuring up the colors and smells of its market and spice shops and introducing the local farmers and artisans with whom he passionately pursues the perfect ingredients and shares his love of culinary experimentation.

When Covid hit and Fadi was faced with closing his restaurant, he channeled his energy into a podcast interviewing the food artisans and farmers (often elderly women) in and around Bethlehem who were growing the grapes, milling the wheat, making the olive oil, and most importantly, passing down the generational food knowledge. Those podcasts inspired this book—a celebration of the legacy and enduring importance of Bethlehem.
