New Years Day 2019 you don't expect much to happen except the recovery from the previous nights' events, if you were lucky enough to celebrate, but I got a message from a friend asking if I had seen our McKennas' Guide review. I was in the wilds of West Cork at the time with little internet access so I scrambled to the corner of the house with network and frantically searched online for the review. Thus ensued my stupid crazy happy dance in the kitchen when I found out that our spice mixes had been chosen by McKennas' Guides as New Product of the Year. AMAZING!!!!
McKennas Guides is run by the loveliest couple John and Sally McKenna who I've had the pleasure of meeting at different festivals and food events. They are the experts on the best food to eat, where to eat and where to stay in Ireland and I am just thrilled that they chose our products. Here's what they had to say about us and our spices mixes;
Dvir and Nicola’s Mezze foods and flatbreads have enriched our lives for the last few years, but their trio of spice mixes – Baharat; Hawaj and Dukkah – are something else. Every lentil soup needs Hawaj, 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.
We've been making these mixes for over a year now and have been working on getting these on to the shelves of shops in Waterford. This is perfect timing to have this recommendation before they hit the shelves. It gives us a huge boost to keep developing our business and our products with the support of our customers.
Thank you all for your support during 2018, we are very much looking forward to what 2019 brings!!!
FYI - You can buy our spice mixes from our stall Thursdays at Dungarvan Farmers market, from our online shop and soon in Ardkeen Quality Food Store and Seagull Bakery.
