a 500ml tin of extra virgin olive oil with a 3L tin

We’ve run out of the large 3 L tins of extra virgin olive oil, but have plenty of the 500ml tins until the new stock arrives. They also make really good vases!

To add a little heat to a pizza or drizzled on wilted spring greens,  try our newest addition to the shorkk family Zejd’s chilli infused oil

seasonal shorkk

Old fashioned soft leafed lettuces are appearing in farmers markets and greengrocers now. When you get to the small inner leaves, why not make a lettuce “bokja” stuffed with tomatoes, olives, labneh and a scattering of sumac? A fun way of serving up healthy ingredients for children and an easy thing to serve to friends over for a drink.

Which to use, Zejd souri black olives or souri green cracked olives?

In Turkish the word “bokja” refers to the piece of cloth used to wrap belongings. In Arabic it’s often used to mean “parcel” and refers to parcels of pastry stuffed with rice. 

a visit to our small producer

Visiting Lebanon in the spring as trees came into blossom and wildflowers pushed out of the soil, we were welcomed to the farm of bassatin baanoub by Yasmina Raffoul and Jean-Pierre Zahar.

The diversity of the trees and the crops they grow recall traditional ways of farming and looking after the land. We hope you enjoy their story as much as we enjoyed our visit.
