Homemade hummus with crackers and vegetable sticks

Where does hummus actually come from?

Did you know that hummus is the Arabic word for chickpeas? They are a key store cupboard ingredient throughout the Middle East and so many countries have tried to claim this delicacy as their own invention. The likelihood is that hummus was first made in Damascus. This assumption is not based on the recipe itself but on the red clay bowl in which hummus was originally served.

What actually is chicken shawarma?

Shawarma is an Arabic word derived from the Turkish word "çevirme" and means "to turn". This dish originates from the Ottoman Empire and is now a staple in various Middle Eastern countries, from Turkey to Lebanon, Syria and Jordan. Traditionally, the meat (lamb, chicken or beef) is aromatically seasoned and then grilled slowly on a rotating spit.
