To mark the end of olive-picking season, celebrity chef Hussam Abbas offers his choicest olive recipes.
Chef Hussam Abbas, founder and owner of the El Babour restaurants, was the first to present Palestinian – Arab cuisine to local foodies. Introducing special dishes, way above the usual grilled mix with humous and tehina, El Babour offered seasonal cooked dishes known only to those fortunate enough to be invited to eat at the homes of wealthy Arabs. To mark the olive picking and olive-oil producing season, Abbas has added new dishes to his very rich menu, including many dishes such as Mushan (see below), Ras El Asfour, lamb in olive oil and felafel stuffed with olives. The restaurants also have fresh olive oil for sale. Try the following recipes from El Babour for a taste of his cuisine….
