I went to what used to be Shayan Market in Torrance; which is now
Seaside Market. The owners agreed to re-stock Jerry's Famous
Hummus!!! Store #7...yes! (See address below)

Here is where you can obtain what I think is the best hummus anywhere.

I first tasted hummus in the late 80's; I really liked it! As I was purchasing hummus from a store one day I thought
to myself: "I could do this." I came home and used a little food processor and made my first batch of hummus - Artichoke
hummus. It wasn't as smooth as I would have liked it, so I bought a larger (Cuisinart) food processor. Even if I let it
run a long time the hummus never really got smooth. I asked a Lebanese restaurant how they
made their hummus. They used a blender. I now am on my third blender; a Blentec 15 amp model.
I started experimenting with different spices and flavors - at this point (mid 90's) I was doing everything by taste - nothing
was written down. Friends would remark that my hummus was the best hummus they had ever tried. Many told me: "Jerry,
you've gotta do something with this!" So bit by bit I looked into what it would take to start a business. The rest is history.
I take real thought into each recipe. I do ask some friends to give me their opinion, but I am the sole
decision maker if a flavor is acceptable. If it doesn't meet my standards - its in the bin.
I hope you try my hummus and enjoy it. Thanks.
