Come along to this feast of Middle Eastern food, a banquet of aromatic mezze.
The bar will be open from 6.00pm, dinner served at 7.30pm, last orders for drinks 10.00pm.
The cooking facilities in the nest are limited and therefore the menu is set, unfortunately we are unable to offer alternative options or swaps and we struggle to safely deal with dietary requirements and allergies. There's no more tables of two due to Mark's new sexy bottling machine
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.
Kuku sabsi - a Persian, very green herb omelette.
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 black sesame seeds, a sprinkling of za'atar and infused olive oil.
A kind of Baba Ganoush thing - I have a secret ambition to get you to eat more aubergine and this is step one!
Big basket of breads
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 served with rice.
Chicken shawarma - shawarma is a very popular street food across the whole of the Middle East. I’ve cracked the shawarma code and it’s awesome. This will be cooked outside on the BBQ and served with coleslaw, couscous and flatbread.
.. and relax, for pudding we have
Chocolate and Halva Brownies served with a cardamom infused whipped cream.
Flavoured meringue kisses with whipped cream (there's always meringue!)
