Laila El-HaddadMaggie Schmitt
Come taste Palestine through the distinctive southern cuisine of the Gaza region with the authors of the acclaimed documentary cookbook The Gaza Kitchen: a Palestinian Culinary Journey, recently featured on Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. Though little known outside the region, Gazan cooking is famous within the Arab world for its rich seafood dishes and its unique combinations of flavors: hot peppers, rich spices, fresh herbs… a cuisine that Anthony Bourdain calls “unlike anything” he’s ever tasted in the Middle East!
Laila El-Haddad is co-author of the award winning documentary cookbook “The Gaza Kitchen: a Palestinian Culinary Journey”, which has been praised by the likes of Anthony Bourdain, Claudia Roden, and Nancy Harmon Jenkins.
Laila El-Haddad is a key voice for understanding the situation in Gaza. Through her blog and book Gaza Mom and her work as a journalist, documentarian, media activist, public speaker and policy advisor she provides rare insight into the human experience of the region. Originally from Gaza, she presently lives in Maryland.
