Middle Eastern Lunch--Help me with my menu

abud | May 5, 2008 11:49 AM

I am making lunch for 15-16 people mid afternoon next Sunday. Many of the recipes I am considering come from May Bsisu's cookbook, The Arab Table. I would love to hear your suggestions on how to improve this menu.


Arab Flat Bread
Goin's fava bean spread

Pull-away cheese rolls



Chicken Shawarma
Marrakesh Vegetable Curry (from Allrecipes--lots of veggies chickpeas and almonds)
Sauteed Greens with Crispy Onions
Basmati Rice


Semolina Pistachio Layer cake
Heidi Swanson's Vanilla Frozen Yogurt (what to mix in?)

OR, I could keep dessert lighter

Roasted Apricot Sorbet
Almond Cookies

Or some combination?

Thank you!
