AUGUST - SYRIAN DINNER WITH FRIENDS

Syria is home to one of the oldest civilisations in the world, with a rich and artistic cultural heritage.

Our guest Syrian chef is the owner of Flavours of Syria and our very good friend, Nayran Tabiei. Nayran will delight your senses with a three course Syrian dinner. She will explain the menu, the culture and traditions of a typical Syrian meal. This is a special evening and tickets are limited.
