Award-winning author, human-rights activist, and cook Yasmin Khan travels through Palestinian kitchens in Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza in her newest cookbook, Zaitoun: Recipes and Stories From the Palestinian Kitchen. Equal parts travelogue and recipe collection, Yasmin explores these kitchens using food as a medium to understand history, identity, and community. She asks us to consider: what does it mean to be Palestinian today? And how is that reflected on the plate?
Moderated by NPR’s Dalia Mortada, join pineapple DC at Logan Exchangefor a deep dive into Yasmin’s narrative where they’ll discuss preserving and savoring Palestinian identities in the midst of a shifting political landscape, share their own beautiful and moving experiences in the Middle East, and reveal how food can be an entryway into understanding our own and other’s cultures.
