Food, drink and merriment

It was a hard decision to post here or in the House Of Life, but considering this topic is more about social then here I shall post. I said somewhere on here that finding a connection to ancient Egypt is enhanced by feeling as if we are living there now. Well, I suppose some ideas on how to do that would be good. Feel free to share your thoughts!

Here is a recent one I tried - very tasty it was too!

That sounds tasty, I should try to give it a go. :slight_smile:

I’ll include it here just in case the link goes away. In particular the Dukka recipe with either some good crusty bread or flat bread. So yummy.


2 tbsp whole hazelnuts
1 & 1/2 tbsp sesame seeds
1 tbsp cumin seeds
1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves
1/2 tbsp fine sea salt
1/2 tsp black peppercorns

Using a food processor: pulse all the ingredients until they are finely ground. They should still be dry, so don’t grind them to a paste. That’s it!

Tear yourself a good chunk of bread, drizzle on some olive oil, then dip the oiled bread into the dukka.

Here is something else I made, many, many years ago. Took around a month. One of my prize possessions: A Senet board. So love this game.

Thought so… I did a video of how to play the game too… :slight_smile:
