Kunefe, knafeh, kanefeh, kunefah...call it what you will. I've been in love with this Levantine dessert for a while now and my cravings have picked up again. It sounds quite strange when deconstructed, but it works beautifully together. The rough version, as in this picture, is made up of a cheese (typically Nabulsi cheese), under a vermicelli-like pasty, soaked in a sugar syrup with a few drops of rose water or orange blossom. The real deal will be made with plenty of semneh, a traditional fermented butter, and it's usually topped with pistachios. I reckon soaking it in Greek thyme honey would work, too. Palestine holds records for the first kunefe ever mentioned, but there are so many variations amongst the different Levantine countries. #kunefe #kanefeh #nabulsi #cheese #dessert #levantine #middleeastern #eastmediterranean #palestinefood #pastry #sweettooth #foodculture #foodthoughts #food #foodie #cravings #foodwithoutborders

Another new sauce/dip creation: roasted carrots, roasted red onion, roasted garlic, harissa and olive oil...
Lunch of roasted butternut squash wedges, leftovers of yesterday's salad (details on previous post) and my homous pimped with my homemade Moroccan spice mix...
Gather 'round, the fatteh is ready! This one's particularly wholesome, as the pita chips were toasted and the eggplant pulp roasted (as opposed to fried). Delicious! .

Toasting cumin seeds, coriander seeds and caraway seeds to create tabil spice mix, which I will grind and add to my harissa sauces and spice mixes, as well as thrown into other creations...the whole house currently smells amazing!
Every time I'm lucky enough to bump into pizzaiolo @hassanakary, he sweeps me off my feet with his inventive concoctions. Case in point: goat cheese whipped with olive oil, leaves of fresh baby thyme, and slivers of crunchy green apple, all enveloped inside his signature handmade saj bread. Masterful! 🍽 . #pizzaiolo #saj #flatbread #lebanesebreakfast #brunch #breakfast #wrap #goatcheese #chevre #cheese #oliveoil #thyme #veggies #vegetarian #greenapple #apple #healthy #wholesome #chef #mercichef #levantine #lebanese #foodie #gourmet #delicious #foodblogger #blogger #foodwriter

I made my first (and definitely not last!) 'ajvar' sauce yesterday. Made of roasted red peppers & aubergines, garlic, olive oil and vinegar, it's a lovely light sauce that can be eaten in multiple ways...the roasted aubergine flesh adds more to the texture than the flavour so that the outcome is a really light, almost whipped, finish, very nice...
Roasted cauliflower topped with a mixed herb and freeze dried pineapple salsa, and crumbled goats cheese...
#Lunch on fleek 👌🏻. Who's hungry? 📸 @chefjoshkatz
One does not simply say no to Shwarma !!! Lip smacking tandoori chicken shawarma @jaipurmodernkitchen @jaipurmodern straight out of "Today's special menu". One of the best shawarma in the city with twist of Indian flavours of tandoori chicken. The juicy, tender chicken with the tandoori spices, diced onion & cucumber makes it complete with the thinnest and super melt in mouth wrap (roti) made from yeast free dough. A delight for all shawarma lovers!! . . Rating: Taste 9/10 .

I don't know how, but Peanut knows he's supposed to love pizza, and he tries very hard to love it, but he really doesn't. What does he love instead? #ZatarManouche! Why?

More Spring colours on a gloomy day in Jerusalem! This is a picture by Aram Hambaryan of the @american_colony_hotel courtyard, a must-see location if you're visiting the city 🙂
Lebanese meat pies called 'sfeeha' - found in the Baalbek region... #delicious - we ate so many. Part of the day @massayalebanon where we explored wine making and tasting...
Soaked chickpeas processed with garlic, vidalia and a big handful of parsley and cilantro. The base for the most delicious falafels! 🥙 Happy Day, Mother Earth.

It was a colorful, bright and sustainable Earth Day mezze dinner for the family tonight! Pickled vidalias with roasted coriander seeds -- beet muttabal -- radish, cucumber, mint and sumac salad -- lemony hummus with crispy cumin and smoked paprika chickpeas -- and, briny cabbage salad packed with cilantro and mint. These would have been perfectly fine on their own but the pickles and salads also accompanied herby falafels (not shown). Super fresh, so tasty, and very healthy. Vegan, but for the two tablespoons of yogurt in the muttabal. Happy Day, Mother Earth.

Beets waiting to roast in the oven with cardamom, garlic, peppercorns, olive oil and kosher salt. The end goal is to process them with labneh (or yogurt), tahini, lemon and garlic, for a slight variation on Mutabbal, one of my fave Levantine dishes. Leave the yogurt out for a vegan and, actually, more authentic dish.

Leftovers of the filling from the previous post with added chopped parsley and coriander to create a salad..
Stuffed & roasted red peppers (full of red onions, garlic, red peppers, red chillies, harissa & tomato - a kind of fridge raid imam biyaldi minus the aubergine), topped with extra red onion slices, eaten with roasted cauliflower & homous...all homemade wonderful goodness!
