Have fun experimenting over the festive period!
Lebanese liquid gold
Lebanon's most popular spice?
Sumac is much loved in Lebanon for adding a lemony citrusy zing to salads and tomatoes. Try using it instead of lemons on seafood. It works so well scattered over a plate of pan fried scallops and pancetta, served with salad leaves this makes a delicious festive treat.
...and the other most popular spice!
Sprinkle this on tomatoes and potatoes towards the end of roasting and you’ll smell the mountains of Lebanon. Native to Lebanon and Syria, the medicinal properties of this oregano are well documented. It is also drunk as a tisane in Lebanon to soothe respiratory problems. Try infusing some in boiling water, adding a little honey to soothe a cough.
