Entertaining is all about pleasant company with friends, sharing food and good conversation. Great memories often stem from delicious food around the table. Entertaining does not have to be a military exercise with major stress and sleepless nights. With a bit of forward-planning, dishes can be knocked up with a minimum of fuss, many in advance, just to be reheated. At the end of the class we will sit down and enjoy a scrumptious 4-course feast.
- Monday 12 May at 6pm – Classic Lebanese dishes (R430 per person). The Lebanese gastronomy is a rich mixture of various products and ingredients coming from the diverse Lebanese regions. It is with food that the Lebanese express their generosity and hospitality. The secret to mastering Lebanese cuisine lies in the preparation and organization of the menu and in the fact that Lebanese dishes store and reheat well. The Lebanese cook always prepares several dishes in advance and stores the basic mixtures so that they can be combined with other food items to quickly make a full meal. Every household has a constant stock of pickles, olives, cheese, yoghurt, nuts, grain, herbs and spices. A selection of the most popular Lebanese party food including Hummous with ground lamb, Kibbi Naye and Deep-fried kibbi balls, Lebanese salad, bread pies and Osmaliyah.
