The staff are sad to announce the closure of the shop. This had been due to bad management by the owner who did not understand the book trade. He did not know the value of this lovely little shop.
It’s the humble Eastern Mediterranean mezze dish that stole our hearts – who’d have thought a little bowl of smashed up chickpeas could taste like magic? Hummus has become an essential item for any modern well-stocked fridge, whether served as a dip with breadsticks, slathered on bread to give oomph to kebabs or sandwiches, or offered as part of a main meal in its own right. Homemade hummus is superior to store-bought in many ways: it is less sour, more intense in fresh flavours and inexpensive to put together. Here author Dunja Gulin shares her tips and tricks for making perfect homemade hummus, so that you can get the flavour balance and texture just right every time.
The classic combination is usually chickpeas, lemon juice, garlic and tahini – but this basic recipe is so versatile that it gratefully absorbs any flavour you can throw at it. Hummus Where the Heart Is includes such recipes as Onion Jam Hummus, Indonesian-style Hummus, a Baked Aubergine variety and a moreish Cashew and Avocado concoction. There is even a chapter of Dippers, which includes Chapatis, Pitta Breads and Sesame Grissini, with chapters for Hummus Meals and even a daring Desserts section!
