Mitzi’s Mezze has launched a new dukkah range that includes four savoury and four sweet options, available from select specialy stores throughout Ireland and already in use in some well known restaurants and cafés.
Dukkah is a dry blend of roasted nuts and spices coarsely ground into a condiment. Traditionally savoury, dukkah is served with bread and olive oil. However, Dukkah has a variety of uses, as it can be used on meats, rice, vegetables, eggs, pasta, rice, cheese, tofu or salads.
Dukkah is dairy free, egg free, lactose free and can be modified to be vegan. The Mitzi’s Mezze dukkah ranges from vegan to gluten free depending on variety and is specified on each product.
In a departure from your traditional dukkah, Mitzi’s Mezze sweet dukkah pairs raspberry & white chocolate, or cardamom & dark chocolate – ideally suited as toppings for breakfast dishes like granola, porridge and fruit.
Mitzi’s Mezze is the brain child of Tipperary woman Mary Toomey. A graduate of Ballymaloe Cookery School with a strong interest in North African and Middle Eastern food, Mary started Mitzi’s Mezze as a Supper Club in Galway during the recession. Now based in the Galway countryside, over the years Mary has carved out a niche catering service.
“I think by any measure I am pretty well-travelled, but the Middle East and North Africa are my favourite regions to visit simply because the food is outstanding, unique and creative,” she said.
Dukkah is priced at €5.50, to find out more visit www.mitzismezze.com.
