  1. Hot Spiced Cheese Goreme:.
  2. In a non-reactive bowl combine the yoghurt, salt and spices.
  3. In a food processor purée the feta with the garlic and lemon juice then season with salt and pepper. Add the yoghurt and purée further while drizzling in olive oil until smooth.
  4. This can be made 24 hours ahead and kept refrigerated.
  5. Fattoush Salad:.
  6. Syrian Toasted Bread Salad.
  7. Combine the cucumbers, tomatoes, spring onions and herbs. Leave to marinate at room temperature for 2 hours if possible.
  8. Combine the garlic and lemon juice in a small bowl then whisk in the olive oil. Stir this dressing into the salad and leave to macerate for 2 hours.
  9. Just before serving, stir the toasted pita into the salad. It should soak up the dressing. Serve immediately.
  10. Lamb Koftas:.
  11. I like to make these smaller versions, rolled out to the length of my little finger. They are delicious drizzled with tahini and lemon juice, and sprinkled with fresh green chillies.
  12. Mix all the ingredients, except salt and pepper and garnishes, in a large bowl and set aside for a few hours to allow the flavours to develop. Season well and shape with wet hands.
  13. Grill the koftas, without oil, under a 180°C grill until the juice flows clear (8-10 minutes). Drain on paper towels before serving.
  14. Garnish with the chilli and coriander and serve a small bowl of the tahini on the side.
  15. Warm Roasted Olives with Preserved Lemons:.
  16. In a heavy-based frying pan heat the oil gently then toss in the seeds and garlic. Add the olives to the pan with the thyme, harissa and preserved lemon.
  17. Roll the olives in the pan while the seeds pop and the garlic browns.
  18. When the olives start blistering remove from the heat. Finish with the chopped parsley and serve warm.
  19. To serve:.
  20. Warm some flatbreads then brush with olive oil and serve with the mezze and bowls of chopped lettuce, chopped chillies, sumac, lemon juice and olive oil.
