Breaking Bread in Galilee: A Culinary Journey into the Promised Land

Hilayon Press   2012

 
When the author, an American writer living in the Galilee, set out to learn about edible wild plants from her Bedouin neighbors, she stepped into a world of local foods tracing back to the very foundations of human civilization. Breaking Bread in Galilee recounts a journey into Northern Israel's agricultural landscape, to discover food-ways described in the Bible that are still being practiced today, but may be bound for extinction in our lifetime.   In the process, she also discovers that dialogue over food effectively dispels mistrust and creates a powerful bridge across the Jewish-Arab divide.
