The Arab-Israeli Cookbook archiveWhile sharing their recipes, Israelis and Palestinians - Christians, Jews and Muslims - also reveal how they manage to live in a land of walls, checkpoints and suicide bombings. Every person in this play is real. They each have a story to tell, and sometimes those stories, like recipes, gain strength by being collected together. Kusa mahshi u waraq (stuffed courgette and stuffed vine leaves) jostles with gefilte fish; Thai stir fry with barbequed goat's testicles; fattoush (stale bread salad) and kibbeh (pounded wheat and lamb) with Greek salad. For divided communities who still have a land and its produce in common, this is a cookbook like no other.
