13 Sep Thahini in Mexico by Loco Tulum
Sesame seed paste is known as tahini, and it’s an essential supporting ingredient in the Middle Eastern, Greek, North African and Turkish cuisine.
There’s a difference between good and bad tahini.
The best tahini is mildly nutty, creamy, and Savory. It’s rich and luxurious, with a texture like a loose nut butter.
Bad tahini, on the other hand, can be bitter and astringent, bordering on acidic, and can be dry with an almost chalky mouthfeel.
