Reem Kassis is a cook and a writer. Her love of food stems from an upbringing in a family revered for its cooks. From a very young age, she spent weekends in her grandmothers', mother's, and aunts' kitchens observing, learning, and soaking up everything there was to know about Palestinian cooking.
"Palestinian cuisine ... which for decades has been relegated to tourist traps and quick-fare family restaurants, is having its moment." -The New York Times "Palestinians do not often have the opportunity to show off their cuisine." -Financial Times
