As you may know, we’ve had the privilege of learning how to cook Jordanian dishes from the wonderful ladies at Holy Land Designs. Lynn asked us to share a little bit of “our” culture with the women, so we tapped into our North American roots and introduced Taco Tuesday into the Holy Land portfolio.


This may surprise you, but it’s not always easy to find authentic Mexican ingredients in the Middle East. But have no fear, we adapted to the situation and created a mega Mexican-Middle-East hybrid taco. This culinary monstrosity was made possible by a large local flatbread, perfect for any burrito masquerading as a taco (or in Haddie’s words, a village masquerading as a burrito masquerading as a taco).

We could try to tell you how wide these ladies’ eyes got when they saw the size of their lunch, but you just had to be there. Nevertheless, when the going got tough, the tough got going, and only the most courageous of hearts succeeded in finishing their meal. Kathryn was not one of them.


We came up with the original idea of giving the meal for free to anyone who could eat the whole thing in less than an hour, but then we realized the meal was free for everyone. Alas, these victors names will only ever be etched into our memories as the noblest souls who ever crossed the threshold of a burrito bar.

And that’s a wrap,

Haddie & Kathryn
