From Laffa to Baba Ganoush
23 October 2015
The Middle-East cuisine is a source to a few of the most popular dishes, dips & breads in the world.
Most people have heard about Falafel, Hummus and Pita bread, and though they are deemed as supreme “Health Food” in certain countries. In the Middle-East they are considered as staple food for the masses. That doesn’t mean we should devalue their contribution to the local cuisine, but instead - we need to open our eyes and find out what else this cuisine can offer us.
In “From Laffa to Baba-Gaboush” we learn not only about dishes and techniques, but also about the role of the basic ingredients themselves, the stories behind them and more.
In this photo series you can see a range of ingredients & dishes from this area:
1. Green Tahini (contains parsley & coriander) with Falafel patties.
2. Salat Turki (Turkish Salad - tomatoes & onions dip), chickpeas and roasted aubergines.
3. Fattoush salad - deep-fried pieces of pita bread with various seasonal veggies.
4. Roasted aubergine & cherry tomatoes salad.
