The piquant origins of Baba Ganoush

Baba Ganoush is not only a widespread and delicious dip, mainly consisting of eggplant, tahini and garlic, but also has an interesting history. Language researchers assume that Baba Ganoush comes from the Arabic phrase baba gannuj, which means as much as pampered Papa or coquettish Daddy. Therefore, it is speculated that Baba Ganoush could have been invented by one of the wives of the harem of a sultan. If the story is true we can only say: Thanks for one if the most delicious dips ever 🙂
