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.
