About the Author

JOUDIE KALLA has been working as a chef in London for 16 years. She is Palestinian and focuses her cooking around this particular Middle Eastern cuisine, all the while removing misconceptions of Middle Eastern food being little more than greasy kebabs by creating healthy, vibrant, moreish dishes that are easy to make and packed full of goodness. She trained at the prestigious Leith's School of Food and Wine and has worked at restaurants such as Pengelley's(a Gordon Ramsey restaurant), under Ian Pengelley, Daphne's and Papillon with Michelin-starred chef David Duverger. She has been running her own private catering company for over seven years and ran a hugely popular deli, Baity Kitchen, for three years in Chelsea (it closed in February 2013). Loyd Grossman was a regular customer at the deli and has since become a regular supper club client. As well as accepting private commissions, Joudie holds regular supper clubs and in April ran one for Loyd Grossman at the Royal Drawing School. She has been invited to get involved in a supper club with Jamie Oliver's Fifteen restaurant later this year to cook Palestinian food and teach his apprentices how to cook a true traditional Middle Eastern feast.


"The food of Palestine is mouth-watering and colorful. This treasure-trove of a book shows it at its best." -- Sami Tamimi coauthor of Ottolenghi: The Cookbook and Jerusalem
Joudie Kalla is an exceptionally talented chef with a deep understanding of tradition and ingredients that enables her to create exciting and adventurous dishes. -- Loyd Grossman
Great chefs create memories for us by drawing on their reminiscences: The texture, the flavors, the fragrances, the color of these beautiful creations do just that and so much more. -- Nick Crean, owner of chocolatiers Prestat
Joudie probably makes the best Palestinian food I ever tasted; I'm a huge fan of hers. Joudie will make you discover the best Palestinian food. -- Tony Kitous, owner of 15 Comptoir Libanais restaurants
I first met Joudie 10 years ago as a frightened young female chef and I watched her grow and develop into the fine outstanding chef she is today. She was definitely a rising star and shining light in my kitchen. She is the foremost expert on Palestinian food and is by far the biggest contributor to making Palestinian cooking the popular cuisine that it is today. -- Ian Pengelley, head chef of Chai Wu, Mango Tree, Gilgamesh, and founder of Eight over Eight and E&O
"New voice Joudie Kalla is passionate about Palestine - and a stickler for authenticity" -- Diana Henry * The Daily Telegraph *
