Let Ghalid transport you to his home town of Marrakesh. Taste the flavours and enjoy the colours of this cuisine that celebrates seasonality and spice! We will be digging up beetroots and pickings strawberries the day before to make sure these dishes are bursting with local flaovur.
Makfoul is a very traditional dish cooked in family homes across Morocco in a tagine for hours to give it its distinctive flavour and one you might not have heard of before, but you need to try! Don’t worry there is a vegetarian option available that hasn’t escaped the Ghalid flavour touch!
Your starter and dessert are reflective of his more traditional French training mixed up with a more modern influence. Having worked with Ottolenghi in London you can see where this comes from!
So add that to a venue that is utterly charming – a converted church used by Native Feasts – this is one not to miss. Ample parking and just 15 minutes from Oxford – come and join us and be transported to Marrakesh for the evening!
