Kuwaiti Food Spot With thanks to Marybeth Alawadh Ortua

Zaatar is the Arabic word for thyme, it is a wild herb that grows throughout hills and fields of the Levant and East Mediterranean regions. Zaatar bread also known as “fatayer fallahi” which means villagers’ pie, is a typical Palestinian pastry mostly made in spring, which is the official season of collecting fresh wild thyme. It is a flat bread, oily but crunchy, stuffed with fresh zaatar leaves, onions and sumac.
Personally, I’m in a never-ending romantic relationship with zaatar bread! Smelling the scent of freshly baked bread mixed with the aroma of roasting thyme greased with olive oil, is where the romance starts over & over again every time…
