Villa Jerada was started by Mehdi Boujrada, making harissa and chermoula in his home kitchen. Villa Jerada has grown to house many different products- importing, distributing, and making some of the finest artisanal products in the Moroccan and Levantinian repertoire. Choose your flavor from:
-Urfa Biber: Turkey's Urfa Biber tells the story of a mild red pepper that’s dried by the sun, wrapped tight to sweat, and transformed by the moon. Dark purple hues dried of the earth to a raisin like perfection adding a complex approachable smoke and heat. Pairs well with pungent cheese, robust vegetables, & braised meats.
-Sumac: A wild, red berry from Turkey with cherry and citrus notes. Sumac's savory bright fruit and citrus tones make it a great substitute for lemon and tamarind. The acidity mixes well with dressings, marinades, dry rubs and the deep red with purple hues adapt well when dusted on top of fruit, chocolate or ice cream.
-Moruno Rub:Moruno, a popular and beloved Spanish blend with a Moroccan influence, embodies the flavor and culture prevalent on the tapas scene. Villa Jerada's recipe adds a rich layering of aromatic and savory complexity to meats and stews. Made of saffron, cumin, coriander, fennel, black pepper, saffron, dried oregano, thyme, pimento, turmeric. Use on lamb, meat skewers and savory tagines.
