Well no – we cannot claim to be better than Ottolenghi but It was the best ever compliment coming from a chef who was also brother of the groom at this last weekend’s wedding.
Especially as we see Ottolenghi as an inspiration, we were extremely happy to graciously receive the compliment whilst totally acknowledging that we had an amazing location, ambiance and occasion on our side.
May we take this opportunity to compliment Ottolenghi on his culinary vision and flare that lead us on our journey of discovery in Middle Eastern cuisine; he is often the starting point of our Middle Eastern feasts. I’m sure he would recognise more that the odd dish in our repetoire but when something is so good why would you not use it!
Congratulations to Patrick and Philip who married in West Penwith and had a fabulous reception at the Newlyn Gallery with Lafafa catering providing a colourful tasty Middle Eastern spread.
Lafafa Catering has been getting a name for their wedding feasts but they can also cater for smaller parties and dinners. Get in touch for more information.
Over the winter we have been experimenting with icecreams and sorbets.
Pomegranate and blood orange sorbet and cardamom icecream with quince are 2 of our favourites. Both great for smaller numbers as we still havent worked out the logistics of serving frozen dishes on a larger scale.
T’is the season of wedding tastings and we are offering a few of our firm favourites as well as some new dishes: a new bulgar wheat dish with pomegranates and peas – I know that might not sound promising but it really is a wonderful combination (no photo yet so thats the puy lentil with blue cheese.
