Some FANTASTIC news. I have now been able to say that i am releasing my first cookbook in 2016. It will be called the same as my Instagram account "Palestine On A Plate". It is through the wonderful work of my agent Heather Holden Brown and my Publisher Jacqui Small that this amazing beauty has come to life.
I have to say that even though it is my book, it is absolutely gorgeous. I have thoroughly enjoyed writing it, doing the recipes. having to do some research on Palestine and getting very inquisitive with my family about their history.
This book will be filled with so many classics from Palestine and National dishes but most importantly many many vegetarian dishes. It is colourful and vibrant and full of flavour.
To have more information about when it is released and my supperclubs click on the link below and you will get all the info when its time. I promise not to spam you. I only email when there is an event or an important notice to share.
Thank you so much for being a part of my journey.
With Love, from Palestine.

I started this app/blog with the intention to bring a voice to Palestinian Food, Culture and history.

One of the most interesting thing about our times and generation is the news and how we can access it so quickly. I love all things positive and don't watch regular news that much unless there is something catastrophic that is happening and needs our attention.Read More
