Nof Atamna: 'Calling Palestinian food Israeli erases our identity'

Nof Atamna: 'Calling Palestinian food Israeli erases our identity'

Hey everybody!

The first episode of “Otherwise Occupied” is here, and it’s a blast. I was honored to host Nof Atamna, the first Arab chef to win the Israeli production of Master Chef. We talked about the pandemic, about the racism she’s dealt with, and a whole lot about food - specifically Palestinian cuisine and how important it is to her identity.
