Taking inspiration from the flavours of the shuks of the Middle East, Joel Solish — local food industry insider and man behind the popular Never Not Eating line of spice blends — presents a meal to evoke the sights and sounds of the bazaar. It is easy to imagine the hustle and bustle of narrow cobblestone streets and the scent of ancient spice vendors with this delicious mix of local ingredients and far away flavours.?
Israeli-Inspired Corn & Tomato Salad with Za’atar-marinated Feta
Sweet summer corn with a creamy labneh (pressed yogurt) and lime dressing, with briny feta cheese in fused with Joel’s homemade za’atar, a classic Middle Eastern spice blend redolent with sumac, sesame seed, and thyme.
Tahini & Honey Roast Chicken on Spicy Chickpeas
Tons of amazing flavours going on here: nutty sesame tahini and sweet honey glazed chicken lays a succulent foundation for Joel’s unique shawarma spice blend, with hints of cumin, cardamom, cinnamon, fennel, clove, and nutmeg. Served on a bed of spicy and smokey chickpeas studded with caramelized lemons, red onion & dates.
Also available vegetarian with roasted cauliflower.
This luscious Israeli-style milk pudding is infused with tangy sumac, and garnished with 7-Spiced pistachios.
