A Feast from the Middle East
The founder of Lebanese restaurant chain Comptoir Libanais has launched a new catering company.
Tony Kitous, also the founder of Levant, Kenza and Shawa, has unveiled Feasts from the Middle East, a catering company providing Middle East food in venues.
Kitous has partnered with The Admirable Crichton, an event design specialist, to create the new offer that will bring the best food and hospitality of the Middle East and North Africa to events, product launches, award ceremonies, weddings and private parties.
“Eating provides a glorious opportunity to be with friends, family, colleagues or clients to talk, laugh, celebrate and share the latest news,” explained Kitous.
“I am lucky enough to say that I have created a life around Middle Eastern food, traditions and hospitality, both in the Middle East and the UK.
Anis Asghar, chief executive of The Admirable Crichton, added: “Feasts from the Middle East is an incredibly exciting project.
“Food brings people together so what better way to bring such delicious and Middle Eastern dishes to life than through this partnership. We’re delighted to be working with Tony and his team on this project to ensure that authentic Middle Eastern cuisine comes alive in some of the best venues and finest events across Europe.”
Feasts from the Middle East specialise in mezze; small plates of food that are perfect for sharing. The mezze dishes are joined by opulent dishes of roasted lamb, grilled meats and rice dishes, as well as delicious plant-based dishes suitable for vegetarians and vegans before a mix of rich and perfumed sweet treats are served.
Kitous concluded: “I want people to fall in love with the Middle East – its bold flavours and welcoming, generous traditions and I want to share them with you, your family, friends, colleagues and clients.”
