"This splendid book will make your mouth water and show you the wonders of a rich yet simple cuisine undimmed by years of a cruel and pointless siege. A tribute to its authors and a celebration of Gaza's brave and undaunted people." Ghada Karmi
"Rare insight into the intimate everyday lives of engaging people whoraise pigeons and rabbits on their roof tops even as they lament their predicament." -Claudia Roden
"Old school in the best possible meaning of the term." Anthony Bourdain
