RE-INVENTING THE MIDDLE EASTERN FLATBREAD
Manousha Inc. is the modern predecessor of the traditional Middle Eastern bakeries. There, the smell of freshly baked dough would blend with the aroma of thyme (Zaatar), while baking a fresh, nutritious and fulfilling morning meal – the manousha.
Manousha is an Arabic word derived from the root verb naqasha, meaning ‘to sculpt, carve out’. This refers to the process of pressing the flat, rolled dough with fingertips to create little dips for delicious toppings to lie in.
