Dukkha Spice Blend

  • 1 Tbsp. sesame seeds
  • 1 Tbsp. hazelnut or other nuts
  • 1 Tbsp. cumin
  • 1 Tbsp. coriander
For dukkha; toast the sesame seeds, hazelnuts (or other nuts), cumin and coriander in pan or in oven until golden brown. Lightly pulse in food processor or chop finely with a knife.


  • 1 pear, finely diced
  • 1 ounce dried strawberries
  • 1 ounce raisins
  • Splash of brandy
  • 3 ounces orange juice
  • 2 ounces brown sugar
  • 1 ounce honey
  • 1 ounce Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste

To make mustardo; place the diced pears, dried strawberries, and raisins in small pot. Add brandy and flambé. Add orange juice, brown sugar, honey and reduce until nearly all the liquid has evaporated; stirring occasionally to keep it from burning. Season with salt and pepper. Add the Dijon mustard and mix well.

To Serve: Serve with crackers or breads of your choice. Don’t forget to utilize fresh and seasonal vegetables like endive, celery, cucumber, carrots, and others as vehicles for the hummus and mustardo. Place a little dukkha on the plate to allow each diner to construct their own serving. For a charcuterie platter, try adding dried meats and a few favorite cheeses.

These types of dishes have won The Mill the prestigious "Best New Restaurant" in the state of Florida for 2015.
