Synopsis

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.

All monies raised from the sales of this book will go to Alrowwad Centre for Arts and Culture, in the heart of Aida refugee camp, a camp born out of the nakba in 1948, it abuts the wall that slices through their land. Established in 1998 by Dr Abdelfattah Abusrour and friends, this centre offers the women and youths of the camp and beyond a chance to develop a skill and escape the daily violence and imprisonments in Palestine. The ethos of the centre is to give hope to the people of the camp and that "beautiful resistance" to daily occupation through theatre and the arts is one step towards a better future.
