The Israeli-Palestinian conflict salad: contested foods in the Middle East

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.

What do you call a Middle Eastern salad made of finely chopped cucumbers, tomatoes and onions, with lemon and olive oil dressing? Well, it depends who you ask. Traditionally called "Arab Salad", it's now widely known as "Israeli Salad" and the debate is fierce! From hummus and tahini, which are clearly Arab but were spread around the world by Israeli companies, to Muslims in East Jerusalem breaking the Ramadan fast with a hot Ashkenazi challah, purchased from their Jewish neighbors. And what does a baguette with schnitzel have to do with it?! In this session we will learn about different Israeli and Arab foods and dive into what they can teach us about each society. And of course, every food we mention will be accompanied by a simple recipe!
