6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The tastes and scents of Levantine cuisine are unveiled in this special evening dedicated to the delicate and sensuous cookery of Lebanon, a country blessed with a long and bountiful coastline and a perfect-for-growing Mediterranean climate.
In this class, led by Middle Eastern cookery expert Bethany Kehdy, you will prepare a delicious menu using Lebanese flavours alongside seasonal British produce. You’ll begin with a Coastal Fattoush, using fresh samphire, courgette, radish and tomatoes before tossing in a verjuice dressing and topping with sumac croutons.
You will learn how to make the national dish of Lebanon, creating your own mini smoked fish Kebbeh (a Levantine fish pie) made with fennel and orange blossom confit. And while you wait for that to be baked to perfection, you will whip up a simply amazing Labneh Mousse with gooseberry and lavender compote.
All before sitting down to enjoy this flavoursome feast to remember!
