Jeremy Gutsche delivered the keynote at Sweet Sesame Spreads - The Halva Spread by Brooklyn Sesame Turns the Arabic Dessert into a Topping in on September 15, 2014.
Eatery Brooklyn Sesame decided to turn the popular Arabic dessert Halva into a delicious spread that can be put on bread, crackers and the like called Halva Spread. This delicious topping turns the once solid honey and sesame dessert into a creamy spread that consumers can use in a wide variety of ways.
Owner Shahar Shamir created the Halva Spread as a way to pay tribute to Mediterranean sweets. Halva is traditionally served in solid chunks that are great for snacking but hard to incorporate into other dishes. The Halva Spread solves this problem by turning the delicious taste of honey and sesame into a spreadable condiment that can be used in a wide variety of ways. The condiment can be topped onto breads, cakes, crackers and even fruit for an added taste of nutty sweetness.
