“This is exactly what a cookbook should be.  It is a guide to knowing a place – its tastes, its ecology, its struggles and its spirit – through the food that people share there.”

- Josh Viertel, President Slow Food USA


The Gaza Kitchen: A Palestinian Culinary Journey is a full-color 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.

Beautiful documentary photography of cooks, kitchens, farms and markets brings the territory and its people to life.
