Your Dinner Party

The first stage of the process is deciding which dinner style is suited to your function, Lebanese Feast or the World Food style of service, followed by confirming your booking date. Next step involves selecting your menu items. Robert will personally help you draw up a plan that will include; the time guest will be arriving, time for pre-dinner drinks and the dinner to follow. We may require visiting your home to discuss your plan and get a feel for your kitchen and the space where your dinner is being held.

With the above confirmed and a 50% deposit paid, we will advise you of the time needed and the time we will arrive to prepare for your event. This will depend on the dinner option and styles of menu and the number of guests. Please be advised some dinner parties may require preparation and cooking time up to 6 hours before the dinner is ready.

The Ingredients

All fresh ingredients including vegetable, herbs and meats will be purchased early in the morning on the day and be brought to your kitchen for preparation and cooking.

The Preparation

We will require a well-equipped and comprehensive kitchen suited for entertaining. A list of the cooking equipment, implements and serving ware needed to prepare and serve your menu will be provided as a check list. Any equipment out of the ordinary that is needed for your dinner party we will bring along. On arrival we will start the preparation of all the ingredients to be ready for cooking in accordance to your schedule, so that everything is fresh and hot.

The Cooking

When the preparation work has been completed the meals will be cooked to coincide with the dinner and menu plan. It is most desirable to cook on a good quality gas stove top and fan forced oven. Electric stove tops are acceptable but we ask that they are fast and modern. The stove top should be equipped with minimum of four burners or hot plates. We will provide any specialised cooking equipment when needed.

The Service

According to your dinner option menu, we will advise you of the required serving and table ware needed to suit your dinner. With Lebanese Feast dinners you have the option to hire our exotic Middle Eastern serving wares, to add an authentic look to your dinner. Please be aware that keeping with tradition, Lebanese Feast is not a plated service, whereas the Wold Food option is a plated service.

Wine Service

For your dinner party and event we can recommend a wine consultant to help select your wines to perfectly compliment your menu. This option is at no extra charge and you will deal directly with our recommended wine consultant.
