Mezze and Wine Evening
Join us for a fabulous evening pairing fresh and fragrantly spiced Mezze dishes with a range of specially selected wines.
"Mezze" means "taste "or "snack" and is a style of dining that is popular in parts of the Eastern Mediterranean, North Africa and the Middle East. It's a fresh and fragrant style of cooking that uses clever blends of citrus, aromatic spice and gentle chilli heat with locally grown ingredients to create small dishes packed with flavour that come alive on the palate. During the evening we will share the principles of food and wine pairing and then explain how to match wines with a range of different spices and levels of heat to create perfectly balanced pairings.
You will enjoy a selection of specially prepared hot and cold Mezze dishes all served with a recommended wine pairing. A typical menu for the evening will include the following:
- Polenta crusted Halloumi with black sesame seeds with a Picpoul de Pinet
- Two styles of Middle Eastern hummus and pitta bread with a lightly chilled Rose
- Fragrant Tabouleh with a light, spicy Gruner Veltliner
- Smoked Babaganush served with a lightly oaked Chardonnay
- Slow cooked Moroccan Lamb Tagine with a rustic Southern Meditteranean red wine
- Sticky roasted butternut squash with a red pepper & chilli rub with a spicy Shiraz
- A trio of dessert Mezze including a burnt pistachio cream with pistachio brittle, sticky Baklava and a sweet Labneh all served with a delicious dessert wine
