shorkk’s cook’s delight!

(2 customer reviews)


The perfect present for those who love cooking and care about what they cook with. Zejd’s extra virgin olive oil and Zejd’s pomegranate molasses come wrapped in tissue paper. The jar of saffron is in a drawstring bag made by Tahaddi in Lebanon.

You choose between Zejd green cracked souri olives or Zejd souri black olives
Sumac or a tin of olive leaf infusion to complete the gift.

They fit neatly in a sturdy box with a magnetic seal. We suggest extending the life of the box by using it as a storage box for cooking magazines.

Our first gift box. We’ve called it shorkk’s cook’s delight because it contains 5 really special Lebanese ingredients. They have won over customers looking for authentic tastes from a part of the world many would love to visit.

One year on, we’re able to give you a choice, so that you can tailor make your gift box. Alongside Zejd’s extra virgin olive oil and pomegranate molasses, please choose either green or black olives.  Zejd green cracked souri olives, picked early and cured in a traditional Lebanese way, are for those who like a slightly sharper, yet creamy, tasting olive. For those who prefer something richer, there is the more “meaty” tasting Zejd souri black olive. Both are the same variety: “souri”, unique to eastern Mediterranean countries. You won’t find these in supermarkets. The market share of “souri” olives is roughly 0.05% of the global olive trade. They’re special.

Then choose between either Zejd sumac or Zejd olive leaf infusion. Sumac, a spice grown for Zejd in north Lebanon, adds a lemony kick sprinkled on chicken, fish or salads. It can also be used to add acidity to sweet things too. Have a look at the recipe for blueberry compote and chocolate florentines on our recipe page.  If you’d rather choose something to relax to, choose Zejd’s olive leaf infusion. The leaves of the olive tree are dried and cracked, and once steeped in boiling water for 6 minutes, produce a mellow tasting caffeine free hot drink. 

All our ingredients are carefully wrapped, and presented with a gift card for your Christmas message. Buying from our stall, the gift box comes with a brown kraft bag to make your gift even more special.

    Just had a late breakfast of your wonderful olive oil, a drop of Balsamico Vinegar and some warm Ciabatta, with the souri green cracked olives – what a great way to start the day!”
