Soup Over Bethlehem: How Apartheid Wall Affects Palestine’s famed Mloukhieh 05/02/2012

Posted by vegetariancooking in Soups, Uncategorized.

Soup Over Bethlehem (2006) depicts an ordinary Palestinian family, Sansour’s own, around a dinner table on a rooftop overlooking the West Bank city of Bethlehem. What starts as a culinary discussion about the national dish mloukhieh being served from a soup bowl soon evolves into a personal and engaging conversation about politics — thereby emphasizing the symbiosis of food and politics so indicative of the Palestinian experience.

Thank you so much for this. Im so happy I’ve found you! As a vegetarian who wants to visit Palestine one day, this is perfect for me. Not only that, I have a visitor coming to stay for a couple of days from Palestine, so I can try out one or two of your recipes for her. With love, Sue x
