the flavours of Lebanon
A true celebration of Lebanon. All the ingredients in this pomegranate tapenade are grown in Lebanon. The black souri olives from Beino, north Lebanon, are finely chopped and mixed with capers which grow wild in Lebanon. The caper plant flowers in July in Lebanon, and after flowering the buds are collected, preserved in brine to be used as a condiment in the tapenade. The intensity of the flavour comes from the marriage of Zejd’s pomegranate molasses with the olives and capers. Thyme, rosemary and dried mint, herbs which play an important role in Lebanese cuisine, provide the seasoning. A touch of garlic, red wine vinegar, and of course Zejd’s extra virgin olive oil, add to the rich flavours in this tiny pot.
