When we were younger, Dad would take us out for scrumptious meals on special occasions. Birthdays, anniversaries, good exam results – any of these qualified for a nice meal outside. An amazing treat for a family of foodies 🙂 On many such occasions we used to go to a nice hotel for a lavish buffet. As kids we were thrilled with the idea of so many options to choose from and with the potential to eat many helpings of things we liked!
I first tried hummus at one of these buffets. It was my first introductions to Middle Eastern/Mediterranean cuisine and I was hooked. This luscious, creamy, nutty, garlicky goodness was addictive! I would eat it plain, with pita, with veggies – you name it.
