SkatePal

[Personal work]

A cookbook that uses food, recipes and stories to paint a portrait of the current skateboard scene in Palestine, and share the story of SkatePal.

READ MORE
SkatePal is an NGO that promotes and facilitates skateboarding in Palestine – a place where due to years of military occupation recreational opportunities are severely limited.

In the seven-years since it began as a humble summer school, SkatePal had helped to build a growing scene in Palestine and a compelling reputation among the international skateboarding community. Problem is, NGOs need funding, and skaters are strapped for cash, so we needed to broaden our audience beyond skateboarding.

If there’s one thing that unites everyone, it’s food. And in Palestinian culture, not only is the food delicious, but it has become an inseparable part of building trust between SkatePal and the local communities.

Hence, this book is a collection of recipes and stories from local skaters, their families, shop owners, local heroes, past volunteers, and even Palestine’s own international masterchef, Sami Tamimi (business partner of Yotam Ottolengi) – plus loads of other fun features.

Pick up your copy here. All proceeds help support SkatePal’s programmes in Palestine. You can also view some stills from the book here.
