Labneh is probably the easiest cheese you can make at home and it’s a great one for parties over the festive season. Who’s not impressed by someone making their own cheese? It’s creamy like a cream cheese but is also tangy and adds a zing to your meal/party spread.
Labneh brings us back to Israel where you can find it served by the Druze community on the side of the road on hot flatbread fresh from a charcoal heated pan, drizzled with oil and za’atar.
You can serve it in a bowl for people to serve themselves or break up some of our za’atar lavosh, dollop on some labneh and garnish with za’atar (use the leftover za’atar from the lavosh pack) and pomegranate kernels.
