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.

"With The Palestinian Table, Reem Kassis gracefully demonstrates the power of food to transcend the political divisions that are, too often, all we know of a place like Palestine. Reading and cooking from this essential book - a thoughtful collection of great recipes, historical and cultural insights, and beautiful photographs - will move you closer to understanding this complex, fascinating part of the world."—Anthony Bourdain

"Your mouth will water as mine does reading Reem’s succulent Palestinian recipes and the people and places that have shaped them! I feel a great debt of gratitude to Reem for giving us this glorious invitation to taste the flavors of The Palestinian Table — this is a table that is akin to other food ways of the Middle East (we're like beloved cousins!), but as we from these cultures know well, each has its own distinctions that are such a pleasure to explore and enjoy. I can’t wait to get into the kitchen and bring Reem’s delicious world into my own."—Maureen Abood, author of Rose Water & Orange Blossoms: Fresh and Classic Recipes from My Lebanese Kitchen
