Cookbook Showcases Gaza's Hidden Culinary Delights
The 140-page cookbook has sold 4,000 copies since it was released in March, said Asa Winstanley of publisher Just World Books.
It reflects growing interest in Palestinian cooking and culture, said Mahmoud Muna, of Jerusalem's "Educational Bookshop" which specializes in Palestinian books.
Bestselling Jerusalem-born British chef Yotam Ottolenghi also recently wrote a book with Palestinian Sami Tamimi called "Jerusalem," covering Arab and Jewish cooking in the holy city.
Qishta, the Rafah housewife, said Gaza residents deserve the praise."Palestinian women are proud of their food," said Qishta, as she baked her bread. ___ Follow Hadid on twitter.com/diaahadid The book: justworldbooks.com/the-gaza-kitchen-a-palestinian-culinary-journey-paperback/
