Za'atar - Spinach and Cheese Pies with Wild Thyme and Sesame Seeds

This could be the best-smelling hands-on session ever, as spice queen Ana Sortun gets you grinding, pounding, toasting, roasting and blending your own exotic spice mixes, before you cook up an array of Turkish, Lebanese, Greek and Moroccan-inspired dishes that look and taste as good as they smell.

Its’ very difficult to find straight za'atar without the sesame seeds and sumac already mixed in. Za'atar is confusing because it means two things....the herb za'atar that is a relative of thyme and the blend of the herb mixed with sesame seeds and sumac. I usually prefer to use the Jordanian blend, if you can find straight herb then the ratio is as above.
