Special Order—Subject to Availability

The beautifully spiced “upside-down” dish, Maqlouba, and rosewater-scented ma’moul date cookies are just some of the perfect dinner party recipes in Bethlehem that have been handed down through generations of Palestinians. 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. Includes metric measures.

Dr Abdelfattah Abusrour was born and raised in Aida camp. He and a group of friends established Alrowwad in Aida camp, Bethlehem. He is also lecturer at Bethlehem University, actor, playwright, and artist. Manal Odeh runs the women's unit in Alrowwad center and is a math teacher.
