Land Day Cook-Along featuring Laila El-Haddad and Dana Dajani!


6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Join us for this special cook-along taking place on Land Day, co-hosted by Zaytoun.

We will be led by Palestinian writer and journalist Laila Alhaddad, whose work focuses on the situation in Gaza and the intersection of food, culture and politics. She is the co-author of the critically acclaimed The Gaza Kitchen: A Palestinian Culinary Journey.  An avid gardener and outdoor enthusiast, she makes her home in Clarksville, Maryland with her husband, their four children, and seven chickens.

To mark Land Day, we will be making traditional Palestinian dishes that are typically enjoyed during the month of Ramadan. This will also be a chance to hear about how Ramadan is marked in Palestine by those who observe it.

We will also hear about the significance of the land from a farmer on the ground in Palestine and listen to fantastic Palestinian spoken-word artist Dana Dajani recite poetry on the topic of land and resistance.
