Full flavours, aromatic spices and LOTS of share plates.
That’s what Middle Eastern cooking is all about and Shane Delia is back to show how us to bring the magic of this exotic yet unpretentious cuisine into our kitchens with his new series A Middle East Feast on SBS Food.
Over 10 episodes, award-winning chef Shane Delia will take viewers on a tantalising and flavourful journey through an array of Middle Eastern dishes. From Turkey to Oman, Israel to Lebanon, Shane will draw on different cultural influences to recreate the food traditions of the Middle East and delve into the stories behind these recipes soaked in history.
Each episode, the Maha chef and restauranteur will be joined in his studio kitchen by local bakers, cooks and café owners who will share their secrets for creating Middle Eastern favourites. Think juicy chicken shawarma, oozing knafeh, croquette-styled Kibbeh and sweet sticky pastries. The feeling of community and entertaining that Shane and his guests create with each dish emphasise that Middle Eastern food is just as much about bringing friends and family together as it is about gorgeous flavours.
As we’re yearning for exotic travel and experiences, A Middle East Feast with Shane Delia is your passport to a delicious journey filled with diverse cultural stories, friendly local faces and mouth-watering Middle Eastern flavours.
