Classic Palestinian Cuisine is a collection of over one hundred mouh-watering dishes, such as ful m'dammas (broad bean salad), kidreh (rice with mutton) and djaj mahshi (stuffed chicken), characteristic of the culinary culture of the Mediterranean. Christiane Dabdoub Nasser's delightful tips and anecdotes, from coring marrows to buying the perfect cabbage for stuffing, vividly bring to life the smells and flavours of Palestinian cookery, as practiced in kitchens across the region for generations.
