Product Review- Terra Rossa Arabian Cuisine

Made n Enjoyed
Hello readers,

Recently we were sent a few rather splendid Terra Rossa-Arabian specialities to try out. Along with The Essence of Gourmet Ingredient - Terra Rossa olive oils, we were also sent their Zaatar mixes and delicious finger licking hand made sauces and dips!!

The Terra Rossa ( Red Soil ) region, which is a biblical name, is given to the part of the Middle East where olive trees are planted.

I am sure many of you are drooling already whilst reading this post and wondering what IS Zaatar mix, and how do you eat it? Zait & Zaatar is arabic for Extra Virgin Olive oil & Thyme Mix. Basically in the Middle East, people have bread, any flavoured extra virgin olive oil and any herb mix as a breakfast or snack.
Consider yourself lucky to get all these exquitisite Terra Rossa products in UK. All the products are available online. Terra Rossa products make ideal gifts for foodies as they are presented in chic, fancy packaging.

The box containes herby mixes such as Zaatar ( made from thyme, sesame seeds and sumac )..Dukka ( made from coriander, sesame seeds and sumac ) and Sumac ( a lemon berry ). It was delicious and a real treat with flavoured extra virgn olive oils and crusty bread.  We particularly liked Zaatar.

They are not only delicious on their own but you can make perfect dips from them too. Use as seasoning, sprinkled over salad, houmous, yogurt and vegetables. Mixed with cheese to make bread, pizza and paninis or use as a dressing and drizzle over pasta, fish or chicken. By introducing these mixes to your meals give your regular food a whole new dimension..!

Also, we had UK hand made sauces and dip jars such as Dukka Harissa, Aubergine and Tomato Relish and Zaatar & Pine Nut as well. I would say they were the highlight of the Terra - Rossa products. So fresh, exotic, pure vegetarian and made from the finest ingredients. The only preservative used is olive oil. They go extremely well with any bread or toast as a dip,  and you can also use as a pizza base, poured over jacket potatoes or simply stir through boiled pasta. Great for a marinate too. Me and my family loved all the dips and we are adding another way to finish these dips and sauces..have it with tortilla chips..the combo of mexican and middle eastern flavours was tantalising !!

Over all we were very satisfied with all the Terra - Rossa products, we are very happy that we have introduced our taste buds to a natural and delightful traditional delicacy from Terra - Rossa. I am confident that once you try these product, you will thank me for introducing them to you.  Most of the products are available online. Sadly only a few fresh dips are made to order and some are only sold at shows or special events and parties. I have to say though, these products are ONLY for those who love to eat fine food and appreciate originality and purity of the food they consume. For more information and order please visit
