Well here we are doing out NINTH pop-up event at Andersons. That’s a regular gig already, no?
On this occasion Mr. Shopkeeper is to do most of the work as we are hosting a Persian barbecue special. Yeah – we know: all men fancy themselves as BBQ gods. But he really is pretty good at this stuff. It is possibly genetic: Iranians love meat cooked over fire, and if you go to an Iranian restaurant you will mostly be expected to eat kebab. Well, this is our take on it. Vegetarians fret not: we will cater for you as well.
The meal will start with fresh herbs, warm bread, cheese and dips: a classic sini-e-mazeh, or tasting platter.
Next up we will bring you spiced quail and Mrs. S’ famous kufteh. Veggies will be offered pumpkin kibbeh and falafel with homemade spiced mayo.
The ‘main course’ will comprise jujeh kebab (tender chicken marinated with lemon and saffron), together with the most famous of the lot: kebab-e-koobideh or skewered minced lamb. This will be served with rice and grilled tomatoes, along with salad and pickles. For vegetarians there will be a spinach and prune tagine.
Pudding will be a meze platter of seasonal fruit, yoghurt with honey and Middle Eastern pastries.
The lovely Lisa will provide tea or coffee to wash it all down. And as she has now been granted a liquor licence, you will be able to peruse has selection of excellent and inexpensive wines and beers.
Befameh – sharm! (which is ‘come dine with us’ in farsi)…
