An Exotic Christmas in Middle East, 14th Nov, wed @ 8:15pm
- At Sefa, since the day we opened our vintage French doors, we aspire to invoke a sense of nostalgia. Nostalgia for the old times of Middle East when communities lived in peace and harmony without any borders. Differences got celebrated and considered as richness. Neighbours celebrated each other’s holly days, learned each others’ recipes and rituals.
We invite you to join us on this 6 course feast incorporating this spirit. Ex-Kazbah, Egyptian executive chef Mohamed Kharboush, seasons Middle Eastern and Northern African recipes with Christmas carols.
Meanwhile Local winemaker Dave Kynaston from "From Sunday Wines" will reveal his passion for discovering unknown wine regions of NSW and thinking outside the box when creating his unusual blends.
Ice breakers and fact checks ensure an unforgettable night of flavours, laughter and new friendships.
