A live cooking demo to make Maftool , one of the most popular Palestinian dishes.

About this Event

Maftoul and olive oil in our recipe for this Fairtrade fortnight reminds us of the farmers in Palestine, who struggle against climate change, with drought getting worse in winter latterly on the one hand, and the settlers re-directing water to the settlements on the other hand. This is also combined with the uprooting of olive trees and building of settlements on farm land that has been taken by force.

Join Us on Wednesday 24 February ,19:00 UTC for Virtual Palestinian Food Demo . The event comes as part of
