Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine yeast, sea salt, organic cane sugar and flours. Whisk to combine.
  2. Make a well in the dry ingredients and add olive oil and 1/2 cup (120 ml) of warm water to start. Stir with a wooden spoon to mix. Add more water as needed until a dough comes together.
  3. Transfer to a clean, well-floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic - about 2 minutes - adding more flour as needed to prevent sticking.
  4. Wipe out mixing bowl and add 1 tsp of olive oil. Roll dough around to coat and position seam-side down in the bowl. Cover with a damp towel or plastic wrap. Set in a warm place to rise for 1 hour.
  5. While dough is resting, in a medium-sized bowl mix ricotta with ¾ cup herbs, sumac, salt and pepper. Set aside.
  6. Once doubled in size, cut dough into 6 even pieces, arrange on a clean surface, and lay a damp warm towel on top. Let rest for a few minutes.
  7. In the meantime, heat a large skillet (electric or cast iron) to medium-high heat (~ 375 degrees F).
  8. One at a time on a lightly floured surface, roll each piece of dough into a large circle that's fairly thin (about ⅛ inch).
  9. Lightly grease preheated skillet and lay down flatbread. Cook, without touching, for 2 1/2 minutes. Flip and cook for 2 1/2 minutes on the other side. Repeat, adding more oil to coat surface, until all flatbread is cooked.
  10. Top each flatbread with ⅓ cup of ricotta mixture. Sprinkle lemon zest and a pinch of sumac for colour. Top with remaining ¼ cup mixed herbs. Drizzle with honey and olive oil. Serve immediately.
Recipe Notes

NOTE: Flatbread with ricotta, sumac, lemon zest and Israeli herbs pair well with a Clover Club cocktail.

Instructions
  1. With a sharp paring knife, cut the peel away from the citrus, taking care to remove all the pith. Slice the citrus into ½-inch-thick slices. Slice the onion into half-moon crescents. Arrange the citrus and onion slices interchangeably on a big platter in several layers.
  2. Chop pistachios and thyme roughly, and sprinkle over the fruit.
  3. Shake or vigorously stir together olive oil, orange marmalade and lime juice until well combined. Pour liberally over salad.
  4. Top with lime zest, smoked paprika or cayenne pepper. Finish the salad off with a generous sprinkle of Maldon sea salt.
Recipe Notes

NOTE: Spicy citrus salad pairs well with a Breakfast Martini cocktail.
