New Cairo

A Little Joy – in Jars
Born last summer – A Little Joy – is the result of the passion of a talented cook and her mouthwatering creations. Her line of delicious, finger licking dips and treats are truly a joy in a jar. The dips are mostly hummus based: black olive hummus and avocado- spinach are among the various combinations. You don’t want to miss out on the signature liver paté. Find A Little Joy jars at Cairo’s best farmers markets or get them delivered to your home.
