I’m pleased to post that Ménage a Trois will be opening its doors to the public for the first time on the 3rd March 2012. Our first event, as this oh so subtle post title suggests, will be based on the flavours and fragrances of the Middle East. Middle Eastern cuisine is some of the most fragrant in the world and the culture is amongst the warmest. We (whilst still liking the odd bit of foam here and there) all believe in the value of a shared meal and the opportunity of meeting new people and making new friends. I’ve been very lucky to have toddled about the Middle East a bit and can and absolutely fell in love with both the style and flavours of the food. On a trip back in 2008 I had some of the best food I’ve ever eaten. On the flip side I did end up in a couple of bizarre situations – one of the more notable being the fact that my comrade and I ended up on an Israeli army base in the middle of the Negev desert eating bread and yoghurt whilst having soldiers point out the mine field between Israel and Jordan. Thankfully we were ‘rescued’ by our desert tour guide a short while later, though to this day I still haven’t decided if that was a good or a bad thing...
I digress: I’d never really experienced Middle Eastern food before that trip and it’s pretty safe to say that I can home ‘obsessed’. In the intervening years between now and 2008 I’ve been massively inspired by the work of Greg & Lucy Malouf, Yottam Ottolenghi and Silvena Rowe to name a couple. Thankfully their guidance has helped to develop my excitement about Middle Eastern food into something a little more tangible/edible. So this is what we are inviting you to come and share with us: an evening of authentic flavours and fragrances as well as the chance to meet some new faces, make some new friends and have an evening relaxing safe in the knowledge that we’re not going to turf you out because we need the table for someone else. Whilst I could go on for hours about various exploits I want to keep this simple: Come to the supper club, meet us, enjoy the food and then hear firsthand the reason why you need to visit the Middle East.
