In this demonstration, CIA Chef Bill Briwa makes a spicy dip from the Eastern Mediterranean called Muhammara. Muhammara means "reddened" in Arabic, and versions of this dip are found in Syrian, Palestinian, Lebanese, and Turkish culinary traditions. This dip is made with roasted red peppers, bread crumbs, roasted almonds, cumin, Turkish pepper paste, and pomegranate molasses, which lends a beautiful color and tangy flavor. The dip is served with pita, crackers, or bread.
