How is tahini made?
What we're covering

Follow the journey from sesame seed through to the creamy tahini used in your dishes. The tahini in your ingredient box is made by Har Bracha Tahini - a family business on Mount Gerizim, near Nablus. It was founded by the High Priest of the ancient Samaritan community made up of around 800 people who are split between Israel and Palestinian territories. Neither Muslim nor Jewish, their neutrality has them owning three passports - Israeli, Palestinian and Jordanian. They still use the same traditional grinding methods from times past, and double-mill the sesame seeds for an extra fine finish, making it a popular go-to for chefs around the world.

I think food is at its best when it’s fresh, simple...unpretentious. The most important thing? Ingredients - I am obsessed with quality.
