The Financial Times: Traditional Palestinian cooking with Reem Kelani
'On my television screen earlier this year I watched a woman squat in front of a small portable gas cooker, ignoring the news journalist talking to camera. She scooped cabbage leaves out of the boiling water, and I knew she was softening the leaves in order to stuff them. This Gazan woman was cooking a proper, even elaborate, meal in the bare classroom where she and her family had taken refuge from the bombing.I called my Palestinian friend, jazz singer Reem Kelani, to ask if she would show me how to prepare a few typical Palestinian dishes and tell me more about her peopleís food.'
