Returning to Washington DC Farmers Markets Spring 2018!
Za'atar, Labneh, Mana'eesh and More!
Growing up, no breakfast, table, or conversation was complete without Za'atar and Labneh at the center of our table.
So we embarked on a journey to bring the wonders of premium Za'atar and Labneh. We took our family's age old recipes and perfected them to share these delicious products from our table to yours.
Versatile spice blend used as a rub, seasoning, or mixed with olive oil as a dip.
You can find Z&Z Za'atar in our partner stores and farmers market locations around DC.
Creamy, savory, yogurt, great for dipping, spreads, and sandwiches.
You can find Z&Z Labneh at our farmers market locations around DC.
Authentic Middle Eastern Family Recipe
Quality and dedication to sustainable agricultural development drive everything we do. Our Labneh is handcrafted and made fresh with locally sourced ingredients from a small dairy farm in Maryland. We also take pride in sourcing the best Za'atar in the Middle East - fair trade from farmers and small producers in Palestine.
Dedicated to Quality and Tradition
Mama & Baba
Our mom & dad are the inspiration behind Z&Z.
They grew up eating Za’atar in the Middle East and carried on this cultural treasure as a staple of their household when they migrated to the states in the 1980’s. The inspiration for a food business came from Pops aka Issa, who previously owned and operated restaurants for 30+ years before selling his last one in 2008. Fast forward 8 years later, the Dubbaneh kids dragged him back into the industry and have been loving every second since.
The kids combined their diverse skillsets with the passion they inherited growing up in their Fathers’ restaurant and their moms traditional recipes to share the wonders of za’atar with the DC community. All of the Dubbanehs (including the parents) work full time jobs and run Z&Z on the side – it truly is a project of passion! Historically, Zaatar has been believed to enhance cognitive ability. The kids ate it before every exam and have a filing cabinet full of honor roll certificates to prove its benefit.
