Multicultural Madness- in men who intrigue and delicious cuisine!

I had a recent experience which portrayed to me the cultural differences between men and women, specifically with an ethnic background. I found that men of an ethnic background ooze an aura of charm and confidence, making me question to myself as to whether I am being hit on or just idolised and respected as a woman. Someone that appreciates different cultural cuisines this encounter made me look forward to attend premier Sydney caterer’s the George Khouzame Groups- ‘Masterchefs of Middle Eastern Cuisine’ dinner at the Ivy on October 15, 2011

This group are passionate about sharing and portraying modern Middle Eastern Cuisine and Culture in Australia and 2011 marks their 25th Anniversary.

A 10 course dinner of the most delicious Middle Eastern Food this country has to offer my mouth waters every time I look at the chefs food images of what they can create. Hosted by the gorgeous Peter Evans, TV personality and chef from the Hugo’s group, and a guest appearance by funny man, Paul Fenech from TV show ‘Fat Pizza’. The chefs who are flying in from their home cities to prepare dishes for us include:

·         Greg Malouf (Momo, Melbourne)

·         Shane Delia (Maha, Melbourne)

·         Joe Barza (international chef from Beirut)

·         Vincent Gadan (Patisse, Sydney)

Word has it that some of the chefs have blown their ingredient’s budget for this dinner to produce entrees such as:

Walnut crusted pork belly, celeriac semolina, fried cauliflower, Tahini - Prepared by Chef Shane Delia

Venison bastourma, duhka quail egg, Japanese mayo, pickled cucumberPrepared by Chef Shane Delia

I personally am really looking forward to trying the following main:

Moghrabieh with Lamb Cutlet Prepared by Chef Joe Barza

With modern Lebanese entertainment on the night, cocktails upon arrival using Arak and renown Lebanese winery, Massaya Wines being served all night, the night should be truly incredible!

Majority of the corporate tables are filled but single tickets are $250 each and still available by emailing Najee Khouzame on najee@georgeknouzame.com
