We've been dreaming of so many things since we started making plans for the deli and our demo & dines are one of those big ones! We're delighted to let you know then that we'll be closing the summer (and hoping the weather will be kind) with a demo & dine - preparing food on the grill.

As I imagine (and hope!) many of you know, Dvir and I opened our deli on Main Street in Tramore nearly 8 weeks ago. It took an extraordinary amount of work to get our new premises gutted, fitted out and ready to open the doors but we were so glad when they did!

Dvir and I have been making our Middle Eastern mezze ( salads, dips, & breads served at the start of a meal or as a meal in itself like tapas) for nearly 4 years. We've prepared foods for farmers mark...

You might have guessed by the name we chose for our business that we love mezze; usually appetisers served at the start of the meal in the Middle East. But they are so much more than appetisers; they can be a meal in itself and any leftovers are savoured and make the most amazing sandwiches the next day. However, what I love most about mezze is the act of sharing. I find dishes served onto the centre of the table and shared with your loved one, friends or f...

These Middle Eastern meatballs are a great one for barbeques. In our house we can’t have a barbeque without them! They are great with some Middle Eastern inspired salads, pita bread and tahini sauce.

Our version of this Middle Eastern side dish uses brown rice for a high fibre and protein dish. This is great served with a salad and tahini sauce.

200g wholegrain rice

100g brown lentils

2 tsp sea salt (or to taste)

½ litre vegetable stock or water


1. Thinly slice the onions and add them to a large pot with the oil. Cook over low heat, stirring frequently for 40 minutes, or u...

A selection of quick & tasty recipes and ideas to add some Middle Eastern warmth to your meals using our newly launched spice blends. Follow the Irish food gurus John and Sally McKenna:

Every lentil soup needs Hawaiij, a Yemeni spice mix. Every egg needs Dukkah. Every kebab needs to be rubbed with Baharat. The three little jars unlock the scents and subtleties of the Middle East like nothing else that you can buy. Inspired and, indeed, inspiring.

I need not...
