Two protagonists of the MedSnail project, that involves different countries around the Mediterranean, introduce to some of the traditional foods of rural Jordan.

The first is Qors al-Nar, which means “fire bread”, made with whole flour and cooked on coal ash. Once ready it’s garnished with salted, dried yoghurt, soaked in warm water, and a mix of local ghee and onions. The second is samneh, which is the ghee itself, whose preparation is demonstrated from the milking of the goats and through all the subsequent steps: from milk, to yoghurt and butter.

Both these foods are extremely simple and natural, connected to the pastoral traditions of the country.

How It’s Made is a new format for Terra Madre Salone del Gusto 2020. They are accessible for free on this site!
