Cookbooks from Palestine, Sy-ria, and US Immigrants!


Six stunningly gorgeous cookbooks from Palestine & Syria!

All books are priced 20% below list price. I know you can get most of the books from Amazon slightly cheaper, but I invite you to support a Palestinian small business rather than an American corporate giant that has driven many booksellers out of business and has lobbied government for laws that serve corporate interests at the expense of the people.
