Christmas Dinner 2011

Another year is about to finish and again many of us thought it was a good idea to go out and celebrate.  Here are some of the pictures that Duncan (who has full copyright on these pictures and let us kindly using them) took on the night; more are available on his site:

Xmas Dinner 2011

Last year’s Xmas Dinner seems like yesterday: it may come as a surprise that not only is the next grading on Sunday, December 4th, but it is to be followed by the time-honoured tradition of the Carisma Xmas Dinner.

This year we selected an exclusive venue for our traditional Xmas Party. The Box Café is usually closed on Sunday night so we are the only booking for the evening; the place is run by Ozi a Turkish chef and restaurant owner that will provide the full Turkish and mediterranean cuisine experience, in a rich three courses meal.

The starters made of a rich Meze platter will include:

  • Dolma
  • Mercimek Kofte (Red Lentils crushed mixed with weath paste and herbs)
  • Borek (Filo/puff pastry with various fillings)
  • Mozzarella, tomato and olive skewers
  • Pitta, humus, taramasalata and cacik

Mains made on the BBQ including:

  •  Sish kebab (lamb and veggies Skewers)
  • Kofte Kebab (minced lamb skewers)
  • Taruk (marinated chicken breast)
  • Vegetarian / Fish kebabs (please notify on order)

All the above served with Rice with vermicelli and sesame seeds

Dessert made of Fresh Fruit platters and home made Baklava
