The Gaza Kitchen The Gaza Kitchen is a richly illustrated cookbook that explores the distinctive cuisine and food heritage of the area known prior to 1948 as the Gaza District--and that of the many refugees from elsewhere in Palestine who came to Gaza in 1948 and have been forced to stay there ever since.

A Window into the Heart of Gaza 3 mars 2013
Par Lynn B - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This cookbook brings to print recipes so traditional that many Gazan friends of my generation don't even know how to make them!

Coming back to the States from living in Gaza a couple years ago, I had regretted not getting some of the recipes for the dishes unique to the Gaza Strip. I've unsuccessfully searched for hours and even asked friends for some of these recipes, but in an age when everything is online, Gazan cuisine seems to be an exception. This cookbook brought me everything I was looking for, exposed me to so much culinary culture that I hadn't had the opportunity to experience, and brought back wonderful memories of visiting the potters who make the zibdiya, and nights out with friends at an Abu Hisara fish restaurant where the men put huge, uncleaned fish in our hands for a photo op.

As someone who is very deeply aware of the modern story of Gaza, I tend to be somewhat skeptical of representations of life in the Strip. The authors here have painted such an accurate portrayal through the occasional facts and narratives, that I nearly felt homesick for a country that isn't even my home. I've already been recommending this cookbook to people who enjoy food, but I also look forward to loaning it out to people who could use a level-headed illustration of the truth about the occupation without the usual air of activism. It's such a well captured view of the heart of Gaza, intertwined with hard to find, crowd-pleasing recipes.

More than a cookbook 1 janvier 2013
Par J. Hammad - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
You may be surprised to learn, that Arabs dont regularly cook up Shawarmas for lunch, and shish kabobs for dinner. There is a lot more to Arabic cuisine than your local "Mediterranean" restaurant has to offer. This book focus on the home cooking comfort foods that really excite you at the dinner table.

The authors did more than compile a list of their favorite recipes, they traveled to the Gaza Strip, took great photos of the food being prepared, and layered in a lot of stories of the artisans and cooks that have honed their skills in the kitchen. The overlap of individual stories and lore really brings this book to life. The book emphasizes the Gaza kitchen experience, and brings in recipes that are virtually unknown outside of this small strip of land including Sumagiyya which is practically forgotten even in the West Bank, but such a classic Gaza dish.

This book has been very useful for me, because it also has all of the typical home cooked dishes (Moulakhia, Mahshi (Stuffed Squash). etc), but the recipes are fine tuned so that they seem to exactly match the way that "Mom makes it". All too often, hit-or-miss internet sourced recipes just dont seem to hit the mark, this book fixes that, and is my new "go to" cookbook for my occasional experiments in the kitchen.

The book is organized by theme, salads in one section, soups or vegetable based dishes in another, its not too hard to find the dish you are looking for, but an index might be helpful in a 2nd edition version of this book.

Welcome to Gaza 14 avril 2013

On the recipes themselves:

This is an awesome, well-compiled collection of authentic Gazan home-cooking. The selections range from drinks and desserts to salads and main courses and include both local specialties and recipes common to all of the Levant. None of the recipes are particularly difficult to make and many of them are actually quite simple. Additionally, the fact that the book shows you how to make / recommends substitutes for the more "exotic" ingredients is incredibly helpful for anyone that doesn't live near a specialty market.

On the rest of it:

The book beautifully summarizes many of the ongoing issues in the Gaza Strip: the struggles of local farmers and fisherman, reliance on the tunnel system for basic goods, and the difference between availability and affordability. Additionally, when it comes to the women of Gaza, the authors largely step out of the picture and let the women present their own stories. The weaving of these narratives in and out of the recipes movingly highlights the role of cooking and the home in Gaza and presents narratives of food and family that will resonate will almost anyone.

Amazing level of authenticity 23 mars 2013
Par Ayman Aldahleh - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
When I got it, I immediately flipped the pages to the Summagyya and Rommania recipes and I just loved the authenticity of the recipes and the wonderful details and the stories behind it. Gaza is an amazing place with rich culture and the authors clearly put a lot of effort to present one of my favorite aspects of this culture, food!

Very good--fits in with Italian, Greek, French, and Egyptian cooking 9 mars 2013

Very good. This book got me interested in Mediterranean cooking in general, particularly vegetarian. Palestinian, a subset of Mediterranean cooking, complements Italian, Greek, French, and Egyptian. I learned a lot about Gaza from this book. Palestine isn't just any old country. Thank you for writing it. Recommended.
