Date: Thursday 20th February
Venue: Edgbaston Golf Club
Sponsor: Anissa Helou assisted by Elliott O’Mara
Buckland Club members and guests were treated to a real feast when they met in late February at EGC. For many it came as no surprise, since Feast is the title of award winning author and chef Anissa Helou’s latest cookbook. This hefty volume is a gastronomic masterpiece of the Islamic world.
Anissa is well known to the Club, as she sponsored the impressive Moroccan Dinner at the turn of the millennium. It was delightful to welcome her back to Birmingham, where she was joined by Elliott O’Mara the UK representative of the Ghazir winery of Chateau Musar. Both spoke with a passion and knowledge that was greatly appreciated by all. It was unanimously agreed afterwards that the eager pre dinner expectations had been well and truly surpassed.
The full minutes of the evening will be published after they have been presented at the autumn 2020 dinner. A selection of recipes from the dinner will be published in due course on this website.

It was an outstanding evening in every respect: food, wine, … ambience, jollity and company. DL
‘Anissa’s Feast’ was a real treat and we thought the menu and wines were simply delicious. The highlight for us both were the lamb and accompanying Château Musar. Anissa and Elliott spoke with great authority … NH
It was excellent – a proper Buckland occasion with much interest & much pleasure. CF
A fabulous evening … HR
