The Hommous Society is exactly what it seems. It is a society born to celebrate the existence of the famous dip. This year the members of this society will wallow in monumental amounts of hommous.
However, we won't just be dipping toast in the paste and scooping as much hommous as possible. We'll be looking at the origins of hommous, clearing some common misconceptions about it and from that we will deduce the correct manner of eating hommous.
What kind of bread should we use? What kind of music should we be listening to? What should we be drinking? What movies should we be watching? What are good complements to hommous? are all question that will be answered during the year...
Look for Warwick Hommous Society page on facebook!
Thanks to everybody who came on Thursday 22nd for the first meeting.
THIS WEEKEND, LEBANESE CHEFS BEAT TWO GUINESS WORLD RECORDS FOR THE BIGGEST PLATES OF HOMMOUS AND TABBOULEH.
They made 2056 Kgs of hommous and 3557 Kgs of tabbouleh, both of them beating Israeli records for these dishes.
"El Hommos Lebnaneh (Hummus is Lebanese) is an attempt to break the current Guinness world records of hummus and tabbouleh, reaffirming the Lebanese proprietorship of these two dishes," said a statement issued before the event.
