Now for the recipes:
Apple tea iced with gin
Bellini of sparking wine, peach and rosewater syrup
Thyme crackers ( 2 cups of flour, fresh thyme, salt, sugar, 3 tablespoons of cold butter, cup of cream kneaded together then washed with egg white - bake at 180 degrees for about 15 minutes).
Baked ricotta - like this but with preserved lemon mixed through for an extra punch
Eggplant (roasted in oven for an hour whole, peeled then mushed with garlic and lemon juice, pomegranate and parsley)
Preserved lemon dip - preserved lemon and sour cream.
Lamb stuffed with anchovies, rosemary, preserved lemon, and garlic - roasted for 50 minutes at 200 (rested for 10). Served with a green sauce which was like a salsa verde - though more Middle Eastern....
Carrots with maple syrup dressing (and cinnamon, allspice and red wine vinegar).
Roasted beetroot with labna, pomegranate and walnuts
Pumpkin salad with tahini dressing
Cauliflower baked and then dressed with pomegranate (what else?!!?) and other good things
Fresh cherries followed by almond cake but this time, with a dash of rosewater in the mix.
