This delicious Yemenite green sauce can be easily made with a blend of herbs and spices. It’s wonderful served with warmed hummus, pita, falafel, or really any dish.

This Arabic spicy relish is used across the Middle East, and can be found in many Israeli kitchens. Erez uses it as a topping masabacha, but you can slather it on fried fish, drizzle on eggs, or douse on falafel.

An Israeli mezze spread wouldn’t be complete without this chopped Arabic-Israeli salad filled with fresh and crunchy chopped vegetables, and simply dressed with lemon and olive oil.

A delicious spicy Libyan salad with charred eggplant, onions, and peppers. The heat of the peppers balances well with the sweetness of the date honey syrup and fresh mint leaves.

In Arabic, “baharat” means “spices” and can refer to different blends, each made for a specific dish or ingredient. Make Erez’s special spice blend with crushed peppercorns, allspice, fennel seeds, nutmeg, cardamom pods, and cinnamon.

Go back to primitive cooking methods and cook lamb kebabs the old fashioned way. Erez teaches how to chop, spice, and grill a perfect lamb kebab.

The beautiful little lollipop chops are given a preparation combining original flavors with notes of French and Italy with the Dijon mustard, Parmesan cheese and herbs. Twice breaded and slow-and-low shallow fried to perfection. Enjoy the steaming, savory popsicles with a squeeze of lemon and a sprinkle of salt. You'll be left wondering why you’ve been limiting your lamb chops to the grill or oven, and ready to make your own Schnitzel-Pops.

Erez fires up his Taboon oven to create a traditional Lebanese dish named for the pan it's roasted in, with lamb kebabs, tomatoes, and raw tahini.

Erez shows you his simple method for creating crunchy, caramelized nuts. Using peanuts or any other favorite nut but with herbs, spice, and savory tones thanks to Erez's touch. Put it in Erez's Papaya Tabbouleh salad, or add it to anything you like.

A spin on the regional Tabbouleh salad, with other variations offered in Erez's class, this one stands out with the use of Papaya. Tangy, tart, and caramelized peanuts to add some crunch and sweetness. As Erez would say, "wowowowow".

Preserved lemons are an important part of Erez’s kitchen. The salty, briny, citrus flavor brings a beautiful pop of color and flavor, and brightens up any dish. Beautiful, delicious, and long-lasting, get these lemons on your countertop, too.

A divine, silky texture combined with the nutty crunch of almonds and the fragrance of the marjoram, makes this pepper salad totally unique, and supremely delicious. Erez shows you his secret for burning and pealing the peppers, roasting the almonds, and using the garlic confit from his Challah lesson.

Not just a tomato salad, Erez takes it to new heights by adding his favorites, mint, and chili. Learn how to make this summery salad and get inspired by its flavors.
