Rice, lentils and Palestine: it's not just about food and flavours, it's about love and fight.
A short fragment of the story

It was not the rice with lentils that we westerners are used to, but it was spicy, fragrant, soft and yet somehow fragrant. It tasted different from ours, yet partly familiar, because we often use the basic ingredients ourselves. I would have eaten a lot of it, but it wasn’t just me: there were about ten of us, all young, all at the end of a day’s work in the countryside, all hungry.

Why this story is important
For this reason, the story of this rice and lentil dish is linked not only to the knowledge of new flavours and fragrances (never to be found again), but also to the whole period I spent in Palestine and what the Palestinian people passed on to me.
