From the bestselling author of Palestine on a Plate comes BALADI: Palestine - A Celebration of Food from Land and Sea. In BALADI – which means ‘my home, my land, my country’, Joudie Kalla once again pays homage to her heritage by showcasing its wide ranging, vibrant, mouth-watering dishes, taking readers on a journey through Palestinian food and culture.


Palestine is a country of varying seasons and landscapes, and it is these diverse conditions that create the many and varied ingredients featured in BALADI. Joudie takes an entirely flexible approach to cooking, using influences from home to create new ideas, and bringing her own twist to more traditional dishes. BALADI features recipes according to the area they hail from. Experience the wonderful flavours, colours and textures of Palestine through its markets and villages, fields and farms, its orchards, seashores and bakeries. BALADI celebrates a range of sublime flavour combinations and features an entire repertoire of ideas for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, drinks and preserves. As well as stunning food photography, BALADI is also interspersed with location shots of the landscapes, waters, streets and people of Palestine, vividly reflecting the rich culinary history running through the entire country.
