Recipe Development - Fattoush Salad
Zoe takes you through her fattoush salad, a dish that is all about the crunch! She achieves this by carefully selecting her vegetables, building layers of texture and using nuts as part of an Egyptian blend called dukkah which is one of the many North African influences on Israeli cuisine.
Ingredients Introduction - Fattoush Salad
You're introduced to the key ingredients for the homemade soft cheese, some heavy hitters in the middle eastern spice world, as well as your base ingredients for preserved lemons where salt is used to mellow out their bold, tart flavour whilst heightening their "lemony" essence.
Hands On Learning - Fattoush Salad
Get ready to bring a mix of different cultural influences into the kitchen to create this dish. You'll be using ancient techniques and a nut and spice mix that was eaten by Pharaohs in ancient Egypt, to bring together a fresh fattoush salad bursting with flavour that is well-deserving of a spot on the brunch table (even just for its rich history alone!).
