Women in the West Bank town of Nablus are preparing to open a cookery school to teach Palestinian specialties to foodie tourists.
The school will be part of a cultural and social center, called Bait Al Karama, and will be the first women-led cookery school in the Palestinian Territories, according to its organizers.
It has already joined the Slow Food movement, the international association set up to combat fast food culture and concerned with organic, locally-sourced food.

Independence? From who? The men who own them? The culture who commands them to send their children to be suicide bombers?
or from the Cult that stones them to death if they have the unfortunate of being raped.
information, their culture doesn't at all command people to do horrible things like that – that goes against everything Islam would ever preach.
Also, 1. It's not a cult. It's a religion.
2. That part about the stoning is not in the Quran either. You also forget that lots of things are prohibited in the Bible that no one pays attention to nowadays – even if a holy book were to preach something horrible, that doesn't reflect badly on the religion itself. It doesn't represent the whole beauty of a religion.
Women in Islamic culture have been held down so long, it is most excellent to read and taste these recipes.
No politics intended. Fact.
The recipes look & sound amazing! I'd attend the cooking school if I ever got to Nablus. Good luck to all involved in this venture.
