The Kitchen at Storyhouse Chester has unveiled its latest seasonal menu, celebrating the crossroads of the Eastern Mediterranean. With recipes and ingredients from Greece to Turkey, and Libya to Lebanon, each dish bursts with flavour.
Favourites on the starters and salads menu include delicious pea and mint hummus (£3.50), as well as home made fattoush (£4) and wonderfully autumnal roasted beetroot, served with labneh, mint and pistachio (£4.50).
Meat eaters will love the Chester eatery’s hearty harissa pork sausage, with crushed butter beans, parsley and coriander, or the Persian meatballs, with lamb, aubergine and red pepper.
Or, for lovers of seafood the cod, home-cured in ouzo, is served with ruby grapefruit and candied walnut (£6.50), and seared scallops are dressed in fragrant rose harissa oil, and served on celeriac puree (£7.50).
For something sweeter, don’t miss the sweet potato and walnut cake, served with vanilla labneh (£4.50) and the orange blossom terrine, which arrives oozing with honey, cream and a sprinkling of crunchy pistachios (£5).
Take a seat at one of their friendly sharing tables and discover the modern flavours of the Levant.
