When Sabrina Ghayour came along to talk to us about the evolution of her supper clubs and how she became the poster girl for Middle Eastern Food she generously brought the leftovers from the previous night’s supper club; Spiced Lamb Kefta, Naan Barbari (Persian Flatbread) and Morassa Polow (Persian Bejewelled Rice). She also brought a bag full of ingredients to make a couple of her favourite salads - Batinjan al Rahib (Smoked Aubergine Salad) and Blood Orange and Radicchio Salad. In the spirit of conviviality we filmed it and ate it.
Sabrina has done many pop-ups with celebrated chefs such as Anna Hansen, Bruno Loubet and Alexis Gauthier but this was a unique and very personal pop-up. It was spontaneous and delicious and perfectly represented the rich mix of cultures Sabrina has absorbed from Turkish and Armenian to Arab and Afghani and her skill in distilling the essence of the flavours and experience into simple and delicious food.
