Did you know that May 13th is International Hummus Day? Now you do.

That being said, though, based on historical information, hummus likely originated from ancient Egypt. According to several historical sources, the earliest mention of hummus dates back to Egypt in the 13th century. Fast forward to the 21st century and still going strong, I’m joining millions of people around the world in celebrating my love for hummus too. Frankly, I could live on it, and that’s no kidding!!

Chef Ajay Thakur, Corporate Chef, Bayroute, shares his most desired hummus recipes with me. Each one deliriously delicious. Here’s some for you to try at home #TheStilettoFoodieRecommends as I will too. Hope my kitchen holds up these experiments 🙂
