I came up with this bread while stroking my waxed mustache and admiring my man bun. It’s a hipster thing. You don’t have to be a hipster to make it, but you really ought to like blue cheese.
Was thinking about sliced pears and blue cheese on whole wheat crackers the other day. And then I stopped because I was thinking about pears and blue cheese in a yummy bread recipe!
Za’atar is a condiment made from a combination of dried herbs such as ground dried thyme, oregano, and marjoram mixed with toasted sesame seeds, salt, and other spices such as sumac. A complex and savory loaf. Much like the baker himself.
