This coffee recipe comes from Elias Bounajem, a wonderful Lebanese cook in Ft. Worth. You can drink it with anything! How about drinking it with a healthy and traditional Lebanese breakfast of boiled eggs, mashed fava beans (recipe upcoming!) olives, labnah, and pita bread or lavash? Details on this menu next week! Turkish coffee makes espresso taste weak. I used to drink this every Saturday to pump myself up for morning belly dance class. You will need either a small saucepan or a cezve, a little pot with a handle. You will also need authentic Turkish coffee in a little square package. Try shoppping at the Spice Merchant, the India Emporium, the Asian Groceries store at the southwest corner of 21st and Woodlawn, and the Byblos Deli on 13th between West and Meridian.
Our Mar-Apr. session is going on right now. It's ok to jump on in! The next session starts Wed., May 1.
