(Beautiful kitchen provided by the lovely Kylie and Bharat! Thanks)
The day was a real success and the food went down very well. I'm afraid there are not that many photos of the food as I was more involved in getting the food to the tables than documenting everything as it left the kitchen...
(chicken thighs with saffron and hazelnuts, recipe from the Ottolenghi cookbook, so very tasty! He does it with a whole chicken but for the wedding it was better to have smaller portions and chicken thighs were an obvious choice)
It was a lot of work and I enjoyed every minute of it.!
I will be posting up some more of the recipes shortly... Especially the recipe for Sucuk which I had never tried before this event. It is a really delicious, spicy, garlicky, red Turkish sausage and well worth a taste...
