Five Cookbooks Joudie Kalla Thinks You Should Own
Joudie Kalla's first cookbook, Palestine on a Plate, dazzled fans and food critics alike with its fresh, authentic recipes, and warm and familial narrative. Raised in London to Palestinian parents, Kalla's enthusiasm for food took her into the professional culinary world, where she worked with the likes of Ian Pengelley and Michelin-starred chef David Duberger. But, according to Kalla, the most important learning experiences of her culinary career were watching her mother, aunties, and grandmother in the kitchen.
If you're open to some new culinary experiences of your own, Kalla recommends that you start with these five cookbooks that she loves.
"I'm always coming back to our kind of food. That's what I'm familiar with. I don't try to make Japanese food at home, and if I do, I know I'm never going to master it. I prefer to go out and have someone make it for me, I'd make a mess of it."
