With a name like this, you'd expect this dish to be complicated and very exotic. In fact, it's just a pureé of charred eggplant, tahini (sesame seed paste) and garlic. It comes from the Middle East, where it is enjoyed on a mezze platter, for people to dunk their flatbreads into. The Oxford Dictionary suggests that 'baba' means 'father' in Egyptian Arabic, and 'ganoush' could actually be derived from a family name, implying that it could have been passed down from an ancient family recipe. What will we be eating in 20 years?
