DS ORGANIC MOONEH ESSENTIALS


In The Press 
“Preserving vegetables so they can be eaten at any time of the year is an ancient art used by cooks over the centuries to preserve food in times of plenty to sustain them when it was scarce. Chef and author, Dima Sharif gets herself in a pickle and brings back to table home crafted, authentic pickles in time for stocking Ramadan pantries.”

Taster's Feedback 
“Dima’s pickles won’t engulf the mouth with acid. Her artisanal recipes are all about preserves with complex flavours that draw on local, seasonal, organic vegetables, first press organic olive oil, and organic seasonings and spices.”






“The launch of my own brand of foods isn’t about nostalgia, but about preserving a link with where the recipes came from and how they were made; from land to home. By bringing them into the present, I hope to give them a clear sense of what they were and what they still are.” 
- Dima


Dima Sharif Organic Mooneh* Essentials
"back to land and home"
 *Mooneh: Arabic for 'Pantry Stock'



Homemade, Organic
Lemon & Chili Pickles
Now Available at Baker & Spice Dubai

These artisanal spicy pickles are made using outstanding organic ingredients. The green chilies and lemons are locally grown in the UAE and are pickled in an outstanding certified organic, cold-press extra virgin olive oil that I personally picked from an artisanal farm in Jordan.

The content of these jars have all been grown naturally and organically, mostly tended by hand, including the olives that were handpicked this harvest season and pressed to extract the oil following the old and traditional cold press method. All of which had been hand prepared for pickling following my family’s ages old recipe.

Each jar is individually packed and labeled all made with love and care as I do when preparing my own stock at home. I add no chemicals or preservatives so you can rest assured your and your family’s health are safe.

Ingredients: Local Organic Green Chilies, Local Organic Lemons, Organic Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Jordan), Himalayan Salt.

Serving suggestions
These pickles are delicious had with warm bread and really compliment the flavours of rice and grain-based dishes as well as pair well with hummus. They make an excellent relish to grilled meats and personally I just love these over scrambled eggs and labneh. Absolutely mouthwatering!

DS Limited Edition 
Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil 
(first press)
Now Available at Baker & Spice Dubai

From a family farm in Jordan, this certified organic olive oil is extracted from the handpicked fruits of well kept and loved olive trees. This care is very well reflected in the quality of this outstanding olive oil where the olives are very present in its fruity nose and taste.

Ingredients: 350 ml Certified Organic, First Press, Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, produce of Jordan.

Serving Suggestions 
Too precious to cook with this oil is fruity which allows you to use widely. Use as a last stage dressing oil on anything salads dips cooked or raw fish and meat. I love dipping warm bread into it and savouring its uninterrupted nose and flavour.

In The Press
"Taste summons memory and emotion, and for Dima, whose soon-to-be published cookery book is a recollection of food memories and recipes that contrast and connect people and generations, her pickles reconnect the smell and taste of her grandmother’s kitchen to the artisanal continuity of times past."

“Globalisation has altered so much of the past, especially when it comes to food and especially pickled foods. Recipes have altered over time to accommodate mass production. My range is small-batch, home made, and individually packed, with no machinery or chemicals used in the process. I source the very best produce, from the source, and even the salt and seasonings are organic."

Organic Pickled Fresh Zaatar Leaf in Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Only made to order (info@dimasharif.com)

Zaatar and olive oil is at the heart of the Levant. I pickled fresh zaatar leaves instead of drying them for a new/old take on this match made in heaven. 

Because the leaves are fresh the zaatar is highly aromatic and very much present in every bite. The olive oil in this Jar is fairtrade organic Palestinian olive oil.

Ingredients: Organic Fresh Zaatar (UAE), Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Palestine), Himalayan Salt.

Serving suggestions
Simply spoon onto a plate and dip warm bread into the mixture scooping out the zaatar and enjoy the aromatic flavor of both the zaatar and olive oil. I use the zaatar in salad dressings and as an aromatic in my cooking. The zaatar infused olive oil, makes an excellent addition to tomato sauces, pasta, drizzle over pizza or roast chicken. I love to drizzle it over bread as a flavor-packed base for many sandwiches, let your imagination roam.



Yes! Determined to bring flavour and goodness back to your kitchens!
