My first rule of cooking for my family and in my cooking classes is to plan my weekly menu according to what's in season.Check out what's in season all year-round, and plan your shopping accordingly.
In the Levant, April is the season for fresh thyme. I got fresh thyme leaves from Jordan and I love preparing dishes that have fresh thyme leaves as the main ingredient like kaa'kكعك بسمسم -the scrumptious sesame bread and cheese sandwiches.
I also enjoy making my signature thyme and white cheese cake. It is a savourycake that’s just perfect for breakfast. It works well for my kids’ school lunchbox too. It is such a healthy and delicious recipe to bake for your family.
When I was growing up in Jordan, in spring, we used to gorge on fruits such as green almonds, loquats and roasted chickpeas.
