Wondering what to cook with harissa, l’ekama and tanzeya?
Wonder no more! We put together our favorite recipes to inspire you to get in the kitchen and create memorable meals for you and your family.
From a roasted eggplant salad to a slow cooked short rib and Harissa stew.


Our line of handcrafted pantry staples include harissa, a dried fig and apricot spread called tanzeya, and l’ekama, a garlic and chili oil infused with Middle Eastern spices. This is our way to give YOU the tools to create these authentic flavors in your own home. 



The journal is where we share with you our secret family recipes (poppy seed cake anyone?), Our various collaborations with NY based artists, limited edition products & promotions and our journey to bring lesser-known Jewish foods into the limelight.
