About the artist:
Born in 1982, Fidaa Abuhamdiya is a Palestinian chef and artist from Hebron. In 2019 she studied culinary arts at the University of Padua in Italy. She works to combat the Israeli theft and cultural appropriation of Palestinian food; she sees her country’s food as part of the identity of the greater Arab region and a symbol of the culture and heritage of her people. In 2016, Abu Hamdiya and her Italian friend Silvia Chiarantini wrote and published POP Palestine Cuisine, the first book on Palestinian folk cooking in Italian. It is unique in its presentation of an actual culinary journey that starts from Jenin in the north of the West Bank through Jerusalem to the southern West Bank before ending in Gaza.
