Um Sultan, a magnificent cook and farmer, was appalled that we were going to cite her on such a simple recipe. Kufta is considered a lazy cook’s food, something almost effortless for an everyday meal. But it is no less delicious for all that, and with fresh tomatoes and potatoes from Um Sultan’s farm, it was divine. While urban Gazans tend to use an elaborate range of spices, rural tastes rely on farm-grown ingredients.
