I have been inspired. We are eating lebanese tonight. I have just now made the hummus - it's being left in the blender until needed so I can blend again. Added more lemon that usual as this is my taste. I have a load of parsley on the window sill which is going to be cut down in the prime of life, mixed with mint, tomato and burgur, olive oil and lemon juice to make a cracking tabbouleh and that might be it, or else I'll do and get some minced lamb/beef mix to make kofta.
Some Mutabal would go nice with that. Mutubal is also easy to make. Char grill some whole aubergines, or pop them in the oven until soft, don't forget to prick the aubergines or they'll explode.

Scrape off the flesh and let cool, add tahini, olive oil, garlic to taste and whiz in the food mixer, to make (a variation of) Baba Ghanoush add natural yoghurt.

Goes greet with kebe and falafel.

For a main course you can make Melouchrie (spelling!!!) also easy to make.

You could do it as a theme - like Levant or American South or something and you just sit back and wait for the food to arrive

Re: Looking for fresh Hummus

I buy it at Jelmoli in Zurich or Globus Delicatessen, but honestly, the Jelmoli option is better (tasting & more volume/bigger container). Look in the refrigerated food sections. They both come in clear plastic containers, not tin cans

on tuesdays and fridays there is a small market at the back of basel SBB and there is a stall that sells hummus and olives etc.
Hey rob1, I've just sent someone to the Basel SBB market to buy some, but she couldn't find any...
She says she practically went from stand to stand and asked them where are they selling the Hummus and they claim they never heard of anyone actually selling the stuff over there.

I guess the the guy took a day off, huh? How unlucky can you get?

You need to add finely choped spring onions and your Taboulé reciepe is complete ;-)

Re: Looking for fresh Hummus

You can also buy fresh hummus at Itzig's Falafel place in Sonneggstrasse near ETH. But making it yourself is a lot better, and it's really easy.

Re: Looking for fresh Hummus

Hi,

This other thread lists shops and restaurants in your Zurich where Greek food can be bought.

As for Hummus in particular, I can totally recommend the one sold at Zorbas! I happen to live next door

They are located near the S10 Binz station in Zurich. It is a small grocery store with a tiny terrasse, which transforms into a small "cantine" at lunch time on working days.
Outside of lunch hours, they always offer cold home made food to take away (like fresh Hummus, Tzatziki, greek pastries). The prices are very friendly too, similar to Migros but with much better quality.

sounds good but I like the idea of rotating nationalities, a different country every month or something, so it all goes together.....

For Tahina it's essential though for hummus, a blender is easier to clean - I just chuck it upside down in the dish washer. If I can use a blender instead of a magimix I will.
We're on our way. I really miss the leb food in London (can't type: have post Rosso Conero Syndrome)

Re: Looking for fresh Hummus

I'll vouch for US and Italian, with an accent on pastries, and ancient historical recipes lost in time (ever try a Roman delicacy or a medieval amuse-bouche ?)
