East meets East
Middle Eastern Wedding Catering in the East Midlands
Krazy about Koftas or can’t get enough of Baba Ganoush? Why not sprinkle some Arabian charm into your wedding menu. Team Thomas have oodles of experience in bringing show stopping middle eastern wedding catering to life.
Whether it’s the divine charcoal grilled lemon chicken at your favourite Lebanese restaurant; the quaint Greek Taverna where you ate the best Mousakka ever or even the Shish kebab from your local Turkish takeaway that’s your go-to food after a few beers, let an array of middle eastern flavour inspire your wedding menu.
Here’s just a few ways to bring middle eastern food into your wedding menu
Weave in a few middle eastern treats to your canape reception with anything from Kibbeh (spicy minced meat and pine nuts in a crunchy shell) and minted lamb koftas to Sfeeha (Shamazing mini meat pies)
Serve delicious Greek or Arabic style Mezze with mixed flatbreads, mixed hummous and baba ganoush – the big daddy of the eggplant world. Jam packed with flavour and a fabulous way to encourage guests to interact over the tables.
Think melt in your mouth lamb or juicy chicken breast infused with cinnamon, cumin, nutmeg and coriander. Accompanied by fig and almond tabbouleh, Saffron scented pilaw rice and beautiful fresh salads of tomato, aubergine, red onion and crunchy peppers – Delish!
It has to be Baklava – buttery filo pastry with nuts, honey and syrup (sweeeet) or Mouhallabieh – mini rice puds sprinkled with rose water syrup.
The Evening Food
The obvious is the daddy of all late night snacks the lamb kebab served in a toasted pita with all the trimming but for veggies think falafel with tahini sauce and lemon dressed cabbage slaw or grilled halloumi with toasted bulgur wheat and herb salad. The perfect pick me up after a few glasses of the fizzy stuff.
