'Sah-ten' translates roughly from Arabic to 'two healths'. It's a phrase frequently used in Palestine when food is placed on the table. A bit like bon appetit.

Sahten paints a picture of the current skateboarding scene in Palestine, told in the form of a cookbook. Included recipes have been collected from various figures in Palestine’s skateboarding community, supplemented by a couple of recipes from shop owners, local heroes, past volunteers, and even by Palestine’s own international master chef, Sami Tamimi.

Each dish has been illustrated by Palestinian-Canadian animator Noor Abouseido, and coloured in by young skaters in Palestine and the Palestinian diaspora in Canada.

Alongside the recipes, you’ll find interviews with local and international skaters, a yoga sequence to help ease any skate-related aches and pains, and various other features, all peppered with photography collected over the years.
