I have yet to make it to Cava Restaurant in Washington, DC but had a chance to sample their take home items at the Local Foods event in Arlington. After a free sample, in no time I had loaded my cart with both a container of their harissa and their hummus ignoring the $6 price tag for an 8.5 oz container. (Unfortunately, the hummus was consumed before I had a chance to take pictures of this review. Perhaps, however, that will attest to the deliciousness of it.)cava mezze harissa

The harissa is hot hot hot but oh so good. It’s the kind of hot that has that has a great zing of red pepper that doesn’t drown out the rest of the flavors of the tomatoes, garlic and spices.

The Cava Mezze line of products is made through Potomac Fine Foods which is located in Rockville, Maryland. Beyond the harissa, they also make tzatziki, eggplant and roasted red pepper dip, traditional hummus, spicy hummus, and crazy feta. Potomac Fine Foods products are, right now, only found in Maryland, Virginia and DC at this time.

The Potomac Fine Foods website has some great recipes. I’ll have to try the Portobello Mushrooms with Harissa and Fresh Mozarella or perhaps the Sautéed Sweet Corn with Harissa recipe…decisions, decisions.

  1. I want to make some hummus but I am not sure how to make it. Ot how to make tahini as I am pretty sure I can’t get it in the local supermarket, plus I know it is just a paste so it can’t be too hard to make, right?
