Tahini Chocolate Fudge Bar

Date Roll

There’s nothing more comforting, pleasing, and mood-boosting than a little something sweet. In ancient Middle East, sweets were created by combining fruits with nuts and wheat with honey, clusters of raisins and fig cakes were given as reviving foods, and dates were often offered to guests desert travelers to help them restore their bodies with important nutrients. To this day, ingredients such as pistachios, almonds, tahini, rose water, dates, semolina, and orange blossom water are all common staples in sweet making across the Mediterranean and the Middle East.

At Sweet Tahini, we stay true to these customs, and craft sweets using the Middle East’s most nutritious pantry staples, with great respect to its simple, minimally processed, and down-to-earth cooking tradition.

Our Product's Packaging

Tahini

We use tahini (a nutritious paste made from roasted and grounded sesame seeds) in our crafted products, and it’s always at the front and center of our dining events. Made from roasted and grounded sesame seeds, tahini is a nutrient-rich Middle Eastern staple. It’s a good source of plant-based fat, rich in protein, and packed with vitamins and important minerals. While it made its way to the western mainstream as a key ingredient in hummus, this rich, creamy, nutty-flavored component has plenty more, perhaps even better, ways to shine.

Check out our recipes page and learn how one ingredient can bring so many tastes to the plate.

OUR STORY

IMG_20210103_132226_edited.jpg

Born and raised in Israel, and after spending 10 years building a career in the fashion industry, Hila Krikov and her family moved thousands of miles away from home - to a place where familiar Middle Eastern ingredients were near to impossible to find. In her home in Lubbock, Texas, Hila found a new passion for her childhood flavors. Cooking and sharing Israeli foods and stories became the Krikovs’ way to reconnect with home, share their story, and make new friends.

When the family later moved to the Northeast, Hila founded Sweet Tahini with the purpose of introducing sweet, wholesome treats from the Middle Eastern kitchen. Her goal is to inspire locals to make good, healthy food choices, that will nourish both their bodies and mind.
