When Humus was introduced to the UK, back in the 60's, it came with a sidekick; Taramasalata.
Any new gourmet-delight that came with six a's had to be good, and for a while it became almost as popular as Humus.
Then as Humus conquered the country, Tara became the distant cousin; and even changed its colour to a bright, luminous, pink, which reduced its popularity even more.
However, I've always liked it, and as my quest for the perfect breakfast continues I bought some to replace my morning Muesli or Bacon-Butty.
I hadn't tasted Tara for well over 20 years, and was pleasantly surprised. Its colour has calmed, its flavour is much the same, and as an alternative to Lady M's Marmalade it was perfect on 'quartered' slices of wholemeal toast.
I shan't be rushing to replace the current pot, but it will certainly remain on my mental list of 'nice things to eat'.
A good decision!
