I created a workshop in collaboration with Namliyeh with the intention of evolving once and for all past out mother’s go to dip from the 80s: labneh and the onion soup packet.
The 4 hour workshop began by embarking on an urban forage around our neighbourhood, Jabal Weibdeh, to pick up fresh herbs, vegetables, bread and more ingredients that would be woven together into sauces and dips.
Additionally, we learned about the medieval origins of hummus, the concept of ‘taghmees’ as a community bonding experience and explored unconventional flavour profiles including a Spanish cold watermelon and tomato soup.
The day concluded with a feast of our concoctions! We also put together a interactive recipe book to share amongst the group.
