Greetings good gentles. I am new to this list but have some questions that I hope you can help me with.
I am preparing the 12th Night feast for my Barony in January with the theme that "All Rods Lead to Byzantium" I am looking to prepare a feast of 30 items .as we are celebrating our 30th anniversary. My cunning planis to prepare 3 removes each representing some different culture or region that would have been found in Constantinople. I have chosen India, Greece and the Middle East for my areas. I am looking for some items to add to my menu, particularly some period chutney or relish recipes from India and some Greek Savouries. I have already 6 dessert items from the Miiddle East including Iranian, Jewish and a couple that just seem to be found all over the region. Don't wotty about complexity in the recipes, I have been cooking for 30 years so am not afraid to tackle anything. My biggest concern is items that can be prepared ahead as the event kitchen sucks so I have to prepare almost everything ahead.
I would be particularly interested in a recipe for a brined cheese such as feta that I can make myself without two many wildly exotic recipes. I live in a large metropolitan area with huge ethnic diversity so ingredients for ethnic cooking are available. A friend has brought me a plethora of spice components from India so that is fairly well covered.
Thanks for your advice,
