Cook Book, Baladi (Joudie Kalla)


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

"Baladi" means "my home, my land, my country", and here Joudie pays homage to her homeland by showcasing its wholesome, vibrant and truly delicious dishes. Palestine is a country of different seasons and landscapes, and it is these diverse conditions that create the many and varied ingredients featured in the book. Joudie takes an entirely flexible approach to cooking, using influences from her home to create new dishes, and bringing her own twist to more traditional recipes. Baladi features recipes according to the area that they hail from, including land, sea, fields, and the orchard. Dishes are designed to complement one another, and Joudie explains which work well together as a meal, in addition to the varied and diverse origins of the recipes.
