ABOUT THIS MEAL

the menu is palestinian inspired to honor my roots. vegetarian for enviornmental reasons (ask me about it if you like!) so i have reworked a classic palestinian recipe to replace chicken with zucchini. it tastes just as good!

people eat around the couch (comfortable seating for 5-6) and coffee table. most parisian apartments are too tiny to offer a dining table and living room seating area.

music is a must.

i'm a spice/hot sauce fiend so if you want to bring me something and aren't sure a bottle of your favorite hot sauce is ideal!

ON THE MENU

jerusalem salad and homemade garlic hummus
Appetizer

to start a salad of diced organic tomatoes and cucumbers, parsley, chopped onion, dressed with a fresh lemon, olive oil***, salt & pepper vinaigrette. i also make a homemade garlic hummus with no preservatives or chemicals: just tahini, olive oil***, lemon, salt, paprika, cumin, chickpeas, and garlic served with fresh naan (closest thing we have in paris to traditional palestinian bread). *** i only use the finest cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil made from olives grown and pressed by local producers in tunisia, palestine, italy, and france. ask me about fraud in the olive oil industry!

zucchini musakhan with mint yogurt sauce
Entree

musakhan is palestine's national dish. it is traditionally prepared with roasted chicken, sumac, caramelized onions, salt & pepper, and toasted almonds or pinenuts served on top of a fresh piece of taboon bread. the meal i will serve you replaces the chicken with fried zucchini and the taboon bread (which is not available in france) with naan which has a very similar texture. i also serve the musakhan along side a homemade mint yogurt garlic sauce.

apricot spritzer
Beverage

100% apricot juice + sparkling water

selection of my favorite parisian pastries from pain de sucre

we are in paris so i won't try to make a pastry dish when the best pastry shop in the world is less than a mile away. i will pick up a sampling of the best parisian pastries from pain de sucre to finish our meal.
