In this beautiful Palestinian cookbook, food writer Yasmin Khan shares her findings from her travels through the region: herb-filled salads, quick pickles, fragrant soups, tender roasted meats, rich desserts, and vegetarian versions of Palestinian classics. She harvests black olives from the groves of Burquin in the West Bank, hand-rolls maftool (couscous) in home kitchens in Jenin and even finds time to enjoy a pint. As she feasts and cooks with Palestinians of all ages and backgrounds, she learns about the realities of their everyday lives.

There are currently no questions to display about Zaitoun Cookbook.
Zaytoun is a non-profit company established to support marginalised farming communities in Palestine through the production of olive oil and other olive products. The welfare of local farming communities and development of the agricultural infrastructure in Palestine is of the utmost importance to Zaytoun, and as such they operate as a fair trading company, and have recently achieved Fairtrade Certification for a selection of their range.
Palestine is the home of the olive tree, with some of the oldest olive groves in the world, dating back as far back as 2000 years old. The country’s Mediterranean climate, rich fertile soil and Zaytoun’s use of organic traditional farming methods ensure that these olive products are always of outstanding quality.
