Served with an assortment of breads, this breakfast platter off the menu of Teayana here in Jeddah is a stunningly beautiful and traditional breakfast meal here in Saudi Arabia. On the left is an assortment of vegetables, olives, and “Za’atar,” which is a mix of herbs that is very popular in the Middle East. The center set of culinary delights includes a variety of cheeses (some with herbs), and on the right are sweet items. All are eaten with bread.
Za’atar consists of a variety of chopped and dried herbs such as Thyme, Oregano, and Savory, mixed with sesame and spices, and is added to different dishes or just eaten with bread and olice oil. For centuries, varying recipes have been developed, so different countries in the region have their own favorite spices and herbs added into the mix.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby and teenage son. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE, which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
