Once upon a place... In West Asia

Splitting her time between Beirut, Dubai and London, acclaimed chef, author and storyteller Bethany Kehdy has been trailblazing the W.A.N.A. (West Asia and North Africa) food scene for over a decade.

Armed with an on-going curiosity, Bethany uses both pen and plate to unshackle the region’s narrative, moving away from the Eurocentric term ‘Middle East’ to debunk the myth and mysteries surrounding this ancient and multi-layered cuisine and heritage.

Get set for a very special W.A.N.A.-rooted banquet that celebrates the shared yet diverse history and commonalities of West Asian and North African cuisine, the locality of British terroir and the last of the summer season.

As all the best meals do, we start with bread –‘turmeric ember crisp bread with hung-yoghurt, duggah & summer’s zehoug’ – and then it just gets better and better from there…  Dishes like Bethany’s ‘heirloom carrot & caraway mutabal, carrot sticks, date butter, fried cashews & shaved coconut’; ‘scorched leek dolma, cauliflower, chanterelle, puffed burghul, keshkamel, bacon basturma’ ; and ‘Glorious 12th ptarmigan fesenjan, wild berry & Shiraz reduction, foraged greens, tahdeeg’ are generous, playful and made for sharing.

This promises to be very, very special.
