Olive oil, Zaatar and Rustic Bread

This is an interesting entree... Again something that I learned from either the 'square' box or by talking to people.... Priceless information....

It was from the Discovery Channel (Astro) that our taste buds were once again teased by watching the Italians dipping bread into olive oil. The thought of 'swallowing or eating' oil on its own, would make our esophagus shrink!! We tried it anyway... and it was yum...

Point to take note: must use good quality oilve oil...the fruity taste of olive ... its invigorating...

The second part: to dip the piece of bread into olive oil then dip it again in dukkah. I learned this from the Egyptian man who owns a stall in Wanneroo Market.



I didn't try to make the Za'atar shown in the photo above. Olive Oil and the Za'atar were purchased in Margaret River. I have the recipes for both Za'atar and Dukkah. Will try it one day and will put up the recipe + photos plus comments.
