“Yasmin Khan draws on her vast experience as a storyteller, cook, human rights activist, itinerant traveler and writer to create a moving, empathetic, hugely knowledgeable and utterly delicious book.” – Anthony Bourdain

Amidst the olive groves of Nazareth, the spice markets of Jerusalem and the fishing ports of Gaza, travel writer and cook Yasmin Khan fell in love with the flavours and fragrances of modern Palestinian cuisine. The result is a beautiful, accessible book: Zaitoun.

Join us for one special evening featuring Yasmin and Christopher Kimball. Yasmin will talk about her research for Zaitoun, which took her from the pomegranate juice stalls of Akka, on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, to the home kitchens of refugees via the knafeh sweet shops of bustling downtown Nablus. As she talks, she’ll demonstrate how to make her Roast Romanesco Cauliflower with Tahini and Pomegranates, a colorfully cheery dish that is sure to win over even the most ardent cauliflower sceptic.

The event is followed by a book signing and reception featuring samples of recipes from Zaitoun. Cookbooks will be available for sale with your ticket or onsite during the post-demonstration signing and reception.

About Zaitoun: Featuring over 80 accessible recipes, with a special focus on vegetarian versions of Palestinian classics, Khan’s recipes include herb-filled salads, quick pickles, fragrant soups, tender roasted meat dishes and rich desserts, surrounded by a chorus of stories from those who live, love and cook with Palestine in their hearts.

About Yasmin: Yasmin Khan is a best-selling author, campaigner and cook who is passionate about sharing people’s stories through food. Her debut book, The Saffron Tales explored her culinary adventures through Iran and was named by The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and BBC Radio 4 Food Programme as one of the best cookbooks of 2016. Her new book, Zaitoun, celebrates the food and stories of Palestinian communities she cooked with in Israel, the West Bank and Gaza. Prior to working in food, Khan was a human rights campaigner for a decade, running national and international campaigns for NGOS and grassroots groups.
