Often referred to as the Yemeni parmesan, Z'hug (Yemeni Arabic: سَحاوِق — Sometimes spell it zhoug, skhug, s'chug, z'hoog, sahawiq) adds an unparalleled wonderful complexity of flavor to dinner centerpieces that will blow your mind. Adding Z'hug to a dish makes a big impact on its flavor.
In Yemen, the Middle East and North Africa, Z'hug is an essentially savory simple sauce, something like a cross between a pesto and a salsa verde, but hotter than either and with an intricate flavor profile. Z'hug’s versatility makes it more and more popular around the world, and not just in Middle Eastern restaurants and homes. It has recently become popular in the United States.
Our product is a dry recreation of the traditional sauce, featuring a meticulously crafted blend of a variety of premium authentic spices. It has many incredibly devoted fans!
❖ What Does Z'hug Taste Like?
Fragrant, intensely savory, spicy, subtle earthy notes, smokey, slightly citrus finish, with a great depth of flavor and bouquet, and enough heat to satisfy chile fans, but not so much that it overwhelms the other flavors and spices. The exotically delicious combination is sheer genius.
It's a regal spice that adds majesty to dishes, an excellent mystery blend that contributes a whole palette of flavors without dominating an end result. Everything is dialed in — the scent, the color, the texture, the flavor.

Though it may seem like a strange time to celebrate venerable Z'hug when so many in Yemen are suffering, many from hunger, I would argue that there is no better time. For so many Yemenites, their signature Z'hug is a potent reminder of who they really are.
To make a remarkable olive oil seasoning dip, mix 2 tablespoons Classic OLIVE-OIL BREAD DIPPING Seasoning with ½ cup of your favorite extra virgin olive oil.
