Thursday, June 17, 2010 - Spicy New Zealand

I have previously blogged - how I met some Candian tourists who had been told that New Zealand's national dish - is actually a spicy rub - Dukkah.

And to prove the point - is actually owned by Alexandra fine foods who are based in Auckland.

However on their website they do say that Dukkah is from the Middleeast - and was used by Camel Drivers to make bread more interesting. Basically they would roast spices/nuts. They would then dip their bread in olive oil and the Dukkah.
