To celebrate 25 years of catering in Sydney, premier Middle Eastern caterers ‘George Khouzame Group’ present the first of many foodie events designed to celebrate modern Middle Eastern food, wine, culture and design. This annual event, dubbed the ‘Master Chefs of Middle Eastern Cuisine’ dinner, will be held on Saturday October 15, 2011 at the Ivy’s Grand Ballroom, and will showcase all these typically Middle Eastern elements as interpreted by renowned Australian and international Middle Eastern master chefs.
Hosted by author, chef and TV personality, Peter Evans with special guest, comedian Paul Fenech (creator of cult TV show Fat Pizza) this degustation dinner menu will include one specialty dish made exclusively for that night by world renowned chefs including Greg Malouf (MOMO, Melbourne), Joe Barza (international chef from Beirut) and Shane Delia (Maha, Melbourne) all of whom are famous in their own right for pioneering Modern Lebanese cuisine. The finale – the always highly anticipated dessert – will be created by renowned French pastry chef and one of the first creators of the popular macaron, Vincent Gadan of Patisse.
Enhancing this gastronomic feast will be wines to match each dish, and these will hail from famed and established Lebanese winery Massaya wines, as well as Arak, which come all the way from the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon.
“The evening will be a jubilant celebration of artistic expression, not only on the plate but also on the stage, all in all celebrating Modern Middle Eastern cuisine and culture”, says George Khouzame, founder of the George Khouzame Group.
The event is part of the Crave Sydney International Food Festival, and annual October event, and this cultural, culinary showcase is set to be one not-to-miss on the hugely popular event’s calendar.
