A Middle Eastern feast was in the cards for Epicurious Kids. They invited their neighbor Hussein for dinner and were excited to impress him with their cooking skills. The dinner was going to be exciting with many dishes to prep for, cook and plate all at once. “It´s like we are in Iron Chef, mom,” Inigo says excitedly “We have 1 hour to make all these dishes…
The curry was time-consuming with many steps, toasting of the spices on the pan, grinding it by hand while adding the garlic. Tristan was not completely convinced it would make a difference. “This is not easy, grinding it is hard!” he complained. “But it smells awfully fragrant!”
The Tunisian dish Mantiq Hammer was the favourite to prepare, it was simple. The sheer idea of calamari was making the Epicurious Kids´tastebuds tingle. They quickly agreed to divide cooking tasks to get the dishes done faster. “You finish of the curry sauce and bake the fish, and I will flash fry the calamari in the turmeric mixture.” instructed ever-focused Inigo to his big brother.
Once the fish curry was out of the oven, the delicious smell of spices filled the kitchen making Inigo´s mouth water. “I can´t wait to taste the delicious fish curry!” Tristan beamed proudly, “it smells like heaven, and it was worth all the grinding and extra steps!” The doorbell rang, “It´s Hussein!” they both chorused. Dinner served.
