Some of the food I cooked was my usual recipes from home and others I learned or adapted from professional lessons they arranged for us.
One thing I learned was Halva Spread. Halva is sweetened sesame seeds made into a "candy." As candies go, it's pretty healthy. We were taught how to take the ground unflavored seeds, sold in many stores for techina and turn it into a spread, good for sandwiches or for spreading on crackers.
This is really easy, just three ingredients of similar quantities. Don't obsess over measuring exactly. You may like it sweeter or less so, more liquidy or more solid. You won't get arrested for playing with the proportions.
- unflavored sesame paste
- boiling water
