Maklouba apron

“Upside down”, Palestine’s favourite dish

Maklouba is frequently designated as the Palestinian national dish, and is very popular among Palestinians. The dish includes meat, rice and fried vegetables placed in a pot, which is then flipped upside down when served — hence the name ‘maklouba’, which translates literally as “upside-down”.

Although Maklouba has many different variations, this apron shows what is the one and only recipe for its artist, Ayed Arafah.


  • Ayed Arafeh (PS)

    Ayed Arafah was born in Jerusalem and grew up in Dheisheh refugee camp. Nowadays, he works and lives in Ramallah. He has a BA degree in contemporary visual art from The International Academy of Art and a BA in social work from Al Quds Open University. Combining classic and contemporary media, he explores the conceptual image that aims to motivate a better understanding about the self (my self and others) in relation with society’s issues related to politics, culture and economics. His aim is to engage with different levels of society.
