I Ate My Way Through Granville
Discover the exquisite tastes of Lebanon right on your doorstep! Located just 22km west of the Sydney CBD is the multicultural suburb of Granville, which features a buzzing Lebanese hub. You will be guided by Norma Dakhoul, a Lebanese cooking class instructor and the founder of Norma's Lebanese Foods.
This walking tour, which we prefer to call a progressive brunch, will start with a popular Lebanese breakfast of manakeesh, freshly baked pizza-style bread, with toppings like aromatic sprinkling of za'atar (a spice mix of dried oregano/thyme with sesame seeds, sumac and salt & mixed with olive oil), lahem bi ajeen (mince, onions, tomatoes & spices) or Lebanese cheeses. You will then follow Norma to her favourite places for sourcing Lebanese ingredients including stops at the best Lebanese butcher, greengrocer, Middle Eastern supermarket and bakery. Become an instant expert as Norma shares her knowledge on Lebanese eating techniques and cooking traditions. Next we continue with the progressive meal with more tastings which may feature delicacies such as char grilled chicken with toum (a legendary garlic sauce), kafta (mince marinated in spices and mixed with onion and parsley), falalfel (chickpea and herb balls), baba ghannouj (a smokey eggplant dip) and more.
And we'll finish off with tastings at a pastry palace. Put your feet up and relax with traditional Lebanese sweets of ma’amoul (nut or date filled shortbreads), nammoura (a fragrant semolina & yoghurt cake) and mountains of baklawa (filo pastry packages). This is a Lebanese culinary extravaganza you don't want to miss!
All food is included.
