Plated Heirlooms  by Dima Al Sharif

Palestinian cuisine is the compiled story of this sesame-sized country’s huge history, diverse
geography and varied social groups and lifestyles. Most importantly, this cuisine is the story of the passage of time and the changes that took place throughout history. Cuisines are always reflective of all aspects of a people’s lives so Falasteen, like all countries, had plated a cuisine that can be fragmented and divided into sections and categories, however never fully understood nor completely savoured until viewed as a whole. This is that story.

Plated Heirlooms, pours from the belief that while all food is dictated by geography, it is culture that creates and shapes the many varieties that a cuisine plates. As such, Plated Heirlooms is an intriguing blend of cultural history, family stories and Palestinian cuisine recipes.
