I did my spice rotation today. Which isn’t a huge task I just bring stuff like dried chili powders, turmeric, cumin, I also bring my baking items down because this is the time that I bake most. While I was cleaning the cabinet and rotating I got a huge whiff of cumin. It brought back so many memories and I knew I had to make one of my absolutely favorite dishes. Now cumin used to be my least favorite spice until I learned to use it properly.
My first restaurant gig was actually behind the counter serving in a Lebanese restaurant. Of all the places I’ve worked, heck even some places I’ve been Head Chef at, this place had some of the best, most memorable, influential and inspiring food I’ve ever had. I still to this day can remember all the specials I had to write on the black board. Like kefta, fallafel, Sheik al Mehsah and my all time favorite kibbeh bi laban. All the food had a story, It was family style food, it was the stuff the owners, the chefs and the majority of waitstaff and patron grew up on. That being said after I stopped working there and some time past it can be kind of pain trying to remember the Lebanese names of these dishes to try and get google to understand. So I really to go off my memories and what I remembered from being there. Hopefully I did the place proud with this one. Check it out and let me know what you think!
