Authentic modern Middle Eastern home cooking – 150 delicious, easy-to-follow recipes inspired by three generations of family tradition.
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 a tapestry of personal anecdotes, local traditions, and historical context, sharing with home cooks her collection of nearly 150 delicious, easy-to-follow recipes that range from simple breakfasts and quick-to-prepare salads to celebratory dishes fit for a feast - giving rare insight into the heart of the Palestinian family kitchen.
Reem Kassis is a cook and a writer. Her love of food stems from an upbringing in a family revered for its cooks. From a very young age, she spent weekends in her grandmothers', mother's, and aunts' kitchens observing, learning, and soaking up everything there was to know about Palestinian cooking.
