About the Author

Michael Rakowitz is an Iraqi American artist, and Professor of Art Theory and Practice at Northwestern University. Claudia Roden is an award-winning Egyptian British cookbook writer. Ella Shohat is Professor of Cultural Studies at New York University.


Rakowitz's ability to embody the flavour of a complex cultural heritage, the diaspora and its many intersections is what makes this book a joy to read, whether or not you plan to actually cook anything.--Holly Black "Elephant "
Rakowitz's date export project showed how the Iraqi date industry has suffered at the hands of US politics. Moving beyond art and into social activism like much of his work, the recipe book contributes to Rakowitz's interest in creating awareness of this.--Harriet Thorpe "Wallpaper* "
[A House with a Date Palm Will Never Starve] is a cookbook as artwork, a 'culinary intervention', and history and politics are also among its main ingredients.--Cameron Laux "BBC "
Dates have been central to Rakowitz's artistic practice... [and he] hopes that his book will inspire a Western appetite for date syrup and, in so doing, create business for struggling plantations in Iraq.--Figgy Guyver "Frieze "
