Ethiopian Special, June 2013
We’ve been caterirng a host of events recently – if you have an event, we’d love the opportunity to discuss your menu and give you a price for it.
Please order the Shabbos special as soon as you know, preferably by noon on Wednesday. We’ll try to accommodate orders after that, but no guarantee.
Ethiopian is a communal stew based cuisine. The primary spice is berbere (which is a spice blend with paprika serving as the main ingredient – cumin, cloves, cardamom, coriander, nutmeg, salt and pepper, garlic and onions being the main ingredients). The “bread” is injera which is a sourdough crepe made with teff flour (a grain found in Ethiopia filled with protein) and white flour (Teff flour is a little exotic for most Westerners and needs to be “tempered” with the white flour). They use the injera as a utensil to pick up the food that is all placed on a tray in the middle of the table and then everyone shares.
