Reem Kassis decided to write her first cookbook, The Palestinian Table, while she was on maternity leave from her job at an NGO. She had never cooked professionally, but she knew that she wanted to preserve her Palestinian culinary heritage and share it with her children and the rest of the world. She spoke with HRN’s Hannah Fordin about tracing human history through recipes, finding her voice as an author, and explore Reem’s favorite flavors of the Levant.
