Our za’atar is bursting with the flavor of wild thyme grown in the mountains of Jenin, Palestine. We work with local farmers there to source the best za’atar harvested.

Za'atar is one of the most ancient and traditional spice blends in the world, and is found at the heart of every pantry, table, and gathering in the middle east. It’s more than just a spice mix - it’s a cultural icon, a symbol of hospitality, and a staple of any good meal.

Za'atar is a savory and zesty spice mix that's traditionally eaten as a dip with olive oil and fresh bread. This simple recipe is delicious on it's own but it's dynamic flavors can be used in a variety of ways.

A mix of dried wild thyme, sumac, and toasted sesame seeds gives za’atar it's tasty and unique flavor.

You can Find Z&Z Za'atar in farmers market locations around DC and local partner stores.

We grew up in a family of food. Our father owned restaurants for over 30 years and our mom was always in the kitchen cooking for us and hosting others. The most important lessons we learned were those of hospitality and using food as a medium to share our culture and demonstrate your love.


As we grew up we wanted to create something special that was built on food but that represented so much more. That’s where Za’atar comes in. Za’atar’s rich flavors are only enhanced by being loaded with symbolism and identity. Now we’re on an adventure to share the magic of this green gold with the rest of the world.
