Dr. Abdelfattah Abusrour will be at Hadeel to launch his much anticipated recipe book Bethlehem, Beautiful Resistance Recipes.
A culinary journey to Bethlehem, this evocative book brings a taste of Palestine to your kitchen.
From healthy, warming soups to mouth-watering, syrupy “helwa” sweets, the authors have gathered recipes and interviews from the residents of Aida refugee camp, Bethlehem to give the reader a glimpse into daily life there as Palestinian land and culture is being rapidly eroded.
All monies raised from the sales of this book will go to Alrowwad Centre for Arts and Culture, in the heart of Aida refugee camp, a camp born out of the nakba in 1948, it abuts the wall that slices through their land. Established in 1998 by Dr Abdelfattah Abusrour and friends, this centre offers the women and youths of the camp and beyond a chance to develop a skill and escape the daily violence and imprisonments in Palestine. The ethos of the centre is to give hope to the people of the camp and that “beautiful resistance” to daily occupation through theatre and the arts is one step towards a better future.
This is a free event and everyone is invited to Hadeel shop at 123 George Street, Edinburgh
