Dukkah (pronounced DOO-kah): it originated in Egypt, is wildly popular in Australia and is sure to make a splash at your next dinner party. Most commonly served with olive oil, dukkah is special enough to serve as an appetizer alongside a glass of wine, but it’s also humble enough to be enjoyed with a slice of crusty bread as an afternoon snack. First dip your bread in olive oil, then in dukkah, and enjoy. You can also use dukkah as a rub for lamb, chicken or fish or as a crust for roasted potatoes. One of this food’s most attractive...
