❖ What is Z'HUG, you may be wondering?
Native to Yemen — Z'hug [zhuk] is the epic spice revolution you didn’t know you needed. It's an intense flavor enhancer as much as a flavor on their own.
Often referred to as the Yemeni parmesan, Z'hug (sometimes spell it zhoug, skhug, s'chug, 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. It has recently become popular in the United States.
Our product is a dry recreation of the authentic sauce, featuring a meticulously crafted blend of a variety of premium 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 combination is sheer genious. Everything is dialed in — the scent, the color, the texture, the flavor. Warning: When you start to enjoy this spice blend, you practically get married!
❖ How do you enjoy Z'hug? So many ways!
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.
This robust blend is a blank canvas, just screaming for flavor fusion. Greek Spice, or Grecque, is a gentle and tasty, highly aromatic, seasoning blend for Mediterranean luvin’ flavor. It is versatile and easy to use. Greek need only be paired with olive oil.
