A big bowl-full of delicious Palestinian recipes, plus lots of insightful and moving stories... Great stuff (Yotam Ottolenghi)
This is a politically engaged and hungry travelogue, and it is also an inspirational recipe book, and one that anyone who loves food will want to cook from, will need to cook from (Nigella Lawson)
Yasmin Khan draws on her vast experience as a storyteller, cook, human rights activist, itinerant traveller and writer to create a moving, empathetic, hugely knowledgeable and utterly delicious book. Her essays, this food and these photographs give voice to the generous Palestinian people who welcomed her into their homes, to teach and share recipes from a cuisine that has both adapted and endured through decades of diaspora and political strife. The food you'll cook using her recipes is fresh, bright, simple, colorful and deeply satisfying; the stories you'll read will deepen your understanding of an all-too-often misunderstood place and culture (Anthony Bourdain)
A zingingly evocative collection of personal stories and 80 recipes from Palestinian kitchens. Calling it a cookbook does it a disservice. Zaitoun deserves to be read as much as cooked from (Observer Food Monthly)
Yasmin Khan's beautiful Palestinian recipes are written with passion (Guardian)
Yasmin Khan's Zaitoun gives a fine account of Palestinian cooking, with a culinary tour of the region. She does justice to the traditional kitchen while offering her own take on several recipes (Evening Standard)

Personal and well researched, with a strong voice, appealing recipes and beautiful photography: what good food writing is all about (Delicious)
In Zaitoun, Khan has created a beautiful book - as much a piece of travel writing as it is a recipe book - that illustrates the importance of food in shaping identity, while providing plenty of inspiration for an abundant feast (The Caterer)
Human rights campaigner-turned-recipe collector Yasmin Khan's new book, Zaitoun, celebrates the rich tradition of Palestinian cooking, and a food culture brimming with joy (Food & Travel)

" I’m an adventurous eater and curious traveller, never more at home than when in an unfamiliar food market, captivated by the bustling sounds and scents of a foreign land…
The thread running through all my work is a fundamental belief that humans, wherever we are in the world, have more to unite us than to divide us."

Middle Eastern food is a cuisine which I enjoy anyway but this book has provided some really eye opening recipes as well as beautiful extracts of the authors travels in Palestine and the history of the dishes and the people who make them. We have tried five or six recipes now and all of them have been DELICIOUS. We mostly eat vegetarian/vegan and this book caters for that brilliantly as well as offering some meaty options. Even my sister who is a pretty fussy eater and tends to enjoy plainer food has liked all of the dishes we have made - a sure sign that this book is quality! The hummus recipe is OUT OF THIS WORLD and I eat it by the spoonful. I have had to go out and buy some special ingredients such as pomegranate molasses and sumac but my gosh has it been worth it. The only recipe which did not win all out praise was the little date cookies but that was due only to the fact that they were heavily rosy which is not a flavour that we all love however, my mum who does like it, loved them and I can't wait to try out more of the sweeter dishes.
I cannot sing this books praises enough - if you are looking for some new cooking inspiration please try this book! It will liven up your dinner times and introduce you to a beautiful new world of flavours!
Palestine with the Israeli occupation such a difficult oppressive place to live ....yet their dishes are vibrant full of life and colours. Cooked to be shared and enjoyed with friends and loved ones ....
Don't hesitate to buy, delicious and easy to cook recipes that will bring your table alive.
