THE TIMES FOOD BOOK OF THE YEAR 2018

'An important cuisine and culinary tradition that needs to be understood, celebrated, and enjoyed.' Anthony Bourdain

'This book goes to the heart of the relationship between food and identity, and conveys a sense of belonging through beautiful, compelling and, yes, joyous recipes. I just want to eat everything in it.' Nigella Lawson


Joudie Kalla , author of the bestselling Palestine on a Plate , introduces readers to more of the Middle East's best-kept secret - Palestinian cuisine .

`Baladi' means `my home , my land , my country' , and Joudie once again pays homage to her homeland of Palestine by showcasing the wide-ranging , vibrant and truly delicious dishes of this country .

Baladi features recipes that are broadly categorized according to the differing environments they primarily hail from , such as the land , the sea , the forest , the orchard . Experience the wonderful flavours of Palestine through daoud basha ( lamb meatballs cooked in a tamarind and tomato sauce served with caramelized onions and vermicelli rice ), fatayer sabanekh ( spinach , sumac and onion patties ), samak makli ( fried fish selection with courgette , mint and yoghurt dip ), atayef ( soft pancakes filled with cream , cheese or nuts in an orange blossom sugar syrup ), and many more sensational recipes .

Dishes are designed to complement one another , and Joudie explains which work well together as a meal , as well as the varied and diverse origins of the recipes . At the end of the day she takes an entirely flexible approach , using influences from her homeland to create new dishes , and bringing her own twist to more traditional recipes .

MEDIA REVIEWS
The Times Food Book of the Year 2018: "I have given this book to everyone I can think of who is remotely interested in cooking. Most of us are now comfortable dabbling in a Middle Eastern recipe or ingredient, even if that's just sprinkling pomegranate seeds on everything. But we probably wouldn't think of looking to Palestine for inspiration. Well, you must. Every recipe I've tried has blown me away. Even something as simple as fried aubergines with tahini and honey is mouthwateringly good." -- Harriet Addison * The Times *
'An important cuisine and culinary tradition that needs to be understood, celebrated, and enjoyed.' -- Anthony Bourdain
'This book goes to the heart of the relationship between food and identity, and conveys a sense of belonging through beautiful, compelling and, yes, joyous recipes. I just want to eat everything in it.' -- Nigella Lawson
'Joudie Kalla takes the reader on a compelling and delicious culinary journey through Palestine. A much-needed compilation of hitherto undocumented Palestinian family recipes-an ode to Palestine's rich culinary
heritage.' -- Laila El-Haddad, author of The Gaza Kitchen
'Once again Joudie puts Palestine on the map so beautifully by celebrating the breadth and depth of our cuisine-making Palestinians everywhere proud. This important book is a visual and culinary feast that preserves our history and cultural identity.' -- Reem Assil, chef-owner of Reem's California and Dyafa
'Joudie Kalla looks homeward for inspiration ... `I want to pay homage,' she writes, `to the Palestine that my family knew and remembers.' And that's exactly what this book does so gracefully.' -- The New York Times on Palestine on a Plate
'Joudie's cooking is fresh, zingy and full of flavour... BALADI is a real stunner and I cannot recommend it highly enough' * The London Foodie *
'I'm super excited to cook more from it!' * Symmetrybreakfast *
