Real name: زيت و زعتر (In Arabic alphabet)
Country of origin: Palestinian territories
Name’s meaning: “Oil and Zataar” in Arabic
- Olive oil
It is a mix of spices (thyme and sesame), herbs (marjoram, oregano, cumin and fennel) and salt.
How to eat it:
Putting a piece of bread in a bowl full of olive oil so it gets impregnated and then putting it in the bowl with Zataar, so it gets sticked to the bread.
Instead of eating it like this, you can also bring your own olive oil and Zataar to a bakery so they will mix it, put in the oven, and will give it to you ready to eat it. The result, called “Manaqesh Zataar”, is what you can see in the picture that opens the post.
