What you'll do
I will meet my guests at Abbey Road studios which is just a 2 minute walk from my kitchen. Once we are here, i will announce the menu and the different dishes we will make and guide them through each dish. First we will make something called Fatayer which is a spinach filled pastry which will bake in 20 min so they can munch on + drink lebanese wine by the time all the dishes are done. Once everything is cooked, if weather permits I will serve in the garden otherwise the dining area.
