In the Fourmi Bionique production facility, a fragrance from the Middle East is wafting through the air somewhere between the Grand Granola and the NUTBROWN. Enticing scents of toasted nuts and spices are transporting us to exotic places. What is this new treat? It is our very own Dukkah Brunch, which is part of our new product line, Müska, which you can discover here.
What is Dukkah?
Dukkah is a blend that originates from Egypt, traditionally made from hazelnuts, sesame seeds and spices such as cumin, coriander seeds, pepper and salt. Well-known in the southern hemisphere, Dukkah is slowly gaining popularity for its versatility, fragrance, texture and nutritional properties (it is rich in good fats and fibres).
Our very own version, Dukkah Brunch, is very versatile, but it has been tweaked to suit breakfast or brunch menus, with its hints of maple and cinnamon. Available exclusively on our online store, our Breakfast Dukkah can enhance your dishes and recipes in many ways, whether sweet or savoury. Since we don’t like to leave you without some inspiration, here are some recipe ideas:
