Class Type: Hands on
Meze, sometimes spelt Mezze, is derived from the Arabic word t’maza, meaning ‘to savour in little bites’. It’s the ultimate sharing food. Each small dish provides a different taste and textural sensation, making the experience of eating healthy food a constant, joyous adventure.
Your guides on this culinary adventure will be self taught chef and founder of Arabica, James Walters and Executive Chef, David Jones.
We kick off at The Cookhouse which overlooks the buzzing Market, where you will produce an array of seasonal canapés featuring some of Arabica's larder essentials like Urfa chilli flakes, Orange blossom water, Wild Sumac, Pomegranate molasses and Za'atar.
The afternoon concludes with an informal meal, enjoying the food you’ve cooked, served with Lebanese wine and baklawa pastries.
Example dishes :
Hummus with Lamb & toasted Pine nuts - An unctuous puree of chickpeas, stoneground tahini, garlic, lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil with Rhug estate lamb, toasted pine nuts and wild sumac.
