I love Middle Eastern cuisine, far more than just ‘the land of milk and honey’ the region is rich in oils, spices, fruits and flowers and tonight we are bringing you a treasure box of ingredients. Come along to our first ever supper club event held at Holmes Farm, the home of award winning Cuckoo Gin. Nestled in the beautiful Lancashire countryside I’m taking over “the nest” to bring you a feast of Middle Eastern food, a banquet of aromatic mezze on large sharing tables.
Please note; a fully stocked bar will be open for you to purchase drinks from, ticket price does not include any beverages.
Let's begin the evening with sharing platters of mezze starters served with a selection of bread to tear and share.
Homemade, silky, hummus - in Egypt this dish is served as a poor man's breakfast, it's healthy, packed with flavour and delicious (shop bought hummus will never be the same again).
Labneh - a middle eastern homemade soft cheese, we are serving this with olives, pomegranate seeds and basil oil.
Muhammara - Pomegranate molasses is one of those ingredients that you see in the cupboard and wonder what do you do with it, well this Syrian roasted red pepper and walnut dish served with a pomegranate molasses dressing is exactly what that bottle is crying out for.
Baba Ganoush kind of salad - grilled chopped aubergine salad dip - a bit of a salad that thinks it's a dip.
Tabbouleh - This Levantine salad is served widely through the Middle East, packed full of flavour these simple ingredients carefully put together make this dish sing (I make mine with couscous).
Turmeric and lemon roasted salmon - Turmeric is a spice that has been used to flavour food for thousands of years, paired with lemon this marinade lifts the salmon leaving it moist and succulent. This, quite by accident has turned into one of my signature dishes.
Spiced lamb chops - marinated for four days the lamb is flavoured with cumin, cinnamon, turmeric, tamarind, coriander and rose harrisa and cooked over a wood fire.
Served with rice and BBQ'd vegetables.
.. and relax, for pudding we have
Cardamom and rose infused rice pudding served with orange slices marinated in an range blossom syrup.
flavoured meringue kisses with whipped cream (there's always meringue!)
