Newly opened CERU Queensway, home of Levantine cuisine, is inviting Syrian chef Dima Al Chaar into their kitchen to host a one-off Silk Road Journey supper club and evening of modern Syrian cuisine on the 7th March.

Together with CERU’s Chef Owner Barry Hilton, Dima will introduce guests to a range of flavours and influences from her background through a mezze style menu.

Influenced by the traditional Syrian cuisine in her mother and grandmother’s kitchen, Dima’s menu is designed for culinary explorers looking to better understand the culture utilising spices and long-forgotten recipes.

Kicking off the feast there will be cold mezze of Salmon Itch (Aleppian Armenian tabbouleh topped with salmon tartare), Mfasakh Arnabit (Roasted cauliflower steaks, tahini dressing & walnuts) and Hurrak Isba’o (Lentils cooked in tamarind sauce topped with crispy dough & coriander salsa).

Plates of hot mezze designed to be shared by the table will follow, including Sujuk Bel Feter (Aleppian sujuk meat filled Portobello mushrooms topped with feta & marjoram), Msakhan Djej (Sumac caramelized onions & chicken crispy rolls) and Falafel Kreydes (Falafel shrimp tempura with pickled turnips & tahini for dipping).

Main dishes include Sayadiyet Samak (Roasted fish filet topped with saffron rice, crispy onions & seaweed tarator) and Ceru’s speciality Juniper Rubbed Loin of Venison with roasted squash & pomegranate.

To finish, delicately sweet Laymouniyet Tout (Orange blossom lemon curd, marinated berries, almond & pistachio crumble) and Knefet Tefah (Warm apple & cinnamon crispy knefeh cups with vanilla ice cream) will be served for guests to enjoy, bringing the Silk Road journey to a close.

The Silk Road Journey Supper Club takes place on Monday 7th March, starting at 7pm, 7.30pm and 8pm
