a helping hand

As a socially minded business, we strongly felt we needed to respond to the heartbreaking events in the region.

With your help we're donating to an NGO in Lebanon called Najdeh Association. Read more on shorkk stories.

olive harvest

Zejd have begun harvesting their olives in Beino, in the north of Lebanon. Farmers in the south, who still find cluster bombs from the 2006 war with Israeli, are more anxious. They need to gather olives quickly before the ongoing skirmishes turn into anything more serious.
For more about the harvest in Beino see the shorkk story below.

time to buy

Youssef Fares, the owner producer of Zejd, is warning us of increased prices for olive oil next year due to a global shortage.
We are very fortunate to be able to import EVOO from Zejd. While we decide on our order for next year, if you're a fan of olive oil, buy now!

some seasonal things to enjoy

warming breakfast

Porridge season is upon us, and an easy way to jazz up your bowl in the morning is by adding some blueberry compote. Zejd's pomegranate molasses and sumac make a huge difference to a bag of frozen blueberries. Have a look at the recipe below.

an easy autumn salad

We love making this beautiful and simple autumn salad from Claudia Roden's cook book The Med. Zejd's gently peppery EVOO mixed with pomegranate molasses make a fruity dressing for this salad full of texture.

soothing infusion

We've found Zejd's mellow olive leaf infusion even more soothing than normal this week. Keeping us warm and hydrated, re-infusing 1 teaspoon of olive leaves from Beino gives you at least 3 cups of caffeine free mellowness.

If you're a fan of an indulgent chewy florentine, try our recipe below and you'll never buy another packet!
