Falastin is a modern Middle Eastern Cookbook, a love letter to a place and its people.
The companion volume to the ground-breaking, multi-award-winning Jerusalem by the co-writers of Ottolenghi: The Cookbook, Jerusalem and Simple, and two years in the making, Sami Tamimi and Tara Wigley's work is complimented by Jenny Zarin’s exceptional photography and an Introduction by Yotam Ottolenghi.
This is the book I’ve wanted to write for many years. There are so many Palestinian recipes and Palestinian stories I want to share…Falastin, which is the name of the book I’ve created with Ottolenghi long-timer Tara Wigley as my co-author, is our chance to home in and focus on the food, people and stories of Palestine. - Sami Tamimi
We are thrilled to wlecome both Sami and Tara here at Hatchards this evening to discuss their travels, and the tastes of Palestinian cuisine.
£10 tickets are available at the bookshop and online [here].
In Falastin, Tara and Sami have picked up the baton where it was left after Jerusalem. Once again, this is a purely delicious affair (you can take my word for it; I was lucky enough to be there when they tested the recipes). It is based on Sami’s childhood in Palestine and Tara’s journey into the universe of tahini, za’atar and shatta. Being the two formidable culinary forces that they are, Tara and Sami are the best guides I can possibly think of to take you into this world, to learn, like me, to enjoy it and absolutely love it.
