ACCREDITED, RENOWNED AUTHOR: People know and trust Sami Tamimi from his work with Yotam Ottolenghi and their James Beard award-winning cookbook, Jerusalem. They also know him from social media, where Sami has over 50k Instagram followers and 10k Twitter followers. Yotam Ottolenghi has 779k Instagram followers and 38k Twitter followers.
RARE ACCESS: Tamimi takes readers who love Middle Eastern food and culture directly to the people and places they could not otherwise access in Palestine.
DELIVERS THE DEEP-DIVE: Now that Middle Eastern cuisine and ingredients have been well-integrated into the everyday kitchen (thanks to the Ottolenghi cookbooks and restaurants), readers want to dive deeper into the rich and complicated culture and cuisine of Palestine.
“This is a beautiful book and I want to cook every single recipe in it.”—Nigella Lawson
“Sami Tamimi and Tara Wigley’s beautiful Falastin is a love letter to Palestine—its warm and hospitable people and its bright and mouthwatering cuisine. A cookbook should make you dream, it should invite you to an expanding table, and, more important, it should make you drop everything and head straight to the kitchen. This book does all that. One day I hope to visit Sami’s homeland; but until then, with Sami as my host and Tara as my guide, I’ll let the scents and flavors of the Palestinian kitchen take me there as I pull up extra seats at my table to share this colorful and soulful food with family and friends.”—Naz Deravian, author of Bottom of the Pot
“A stunning collection of recipes and stories that showcase the best of Palestinian culture. I want to eat everything in this book”—Yasmin Khan, author of Zaitoun and The Saffron Tales
“Falastin is not a political book; it’s a people book. But most of all, it’s a cookbook that translates the rich culinary history of traditional Palestine into healthy, vibrant food for the twenty-first-century table.”—177 Milk Street
“[A] celebration of Palestinian cooking…Adding to the overall connection between words and stomach are elegant photographs and additional instructions…. The temptation to try [all the recipes] is almost overwhelming. Expect enthusiastic demand from home cooks and foodie readers.”—Booklist (starred review)
