The Palestinian Table


  • One of my all-time favorite cookbooks
  • By Reem Kassis, this book contains 150 easy-to-make at home recipes inspired by three generations of culinary tradition.
  • Kassis conjures up a sense of place, allowing the reader to deepen their understanding of Palestinian culture, daily life, and food.
  • The fried eggs with za’tar and sumac will become an instant part of your breakfast rotation—and don’t miss the fenugreek semolina cake.

"With The Palestinian Table, Reem Kassis gracefully demonstrates the power of food to transcend the political divisions that are, too often, all we know of a place like Palestine. 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
