Under the Copper Covers is a culinary journey of a Libyan woman in search of an identity. Forced to live in exile after the 1969 coup, it was through her passion and love for food and cooking that she discovered her sense of self and belonging in the different cuisines that she encountered along the way. From Libya, Iraq, Iran, Palestine, Syria and Lebanon, this book is the product of her determination to document and preserve this journey.
