Lafafa at Port Eliot

IMG_1108

Lafafa just got back from Port Eliot Festival – our sixth Port Eliot and as good as ever.

Meet Harry Goodwin who got his 10th filled pitta of the festival on the house for being such a loyal customer – you can imagine he didn’t have the time or the room to eat much else!

‘Best falafels ever’ said Harry ‘Lafafa has monopolised the festival food market’

(well for Harry anyway)

‘Better than Ottolenghi!’

Well no – we cannot claim to be better than Ottolenghi but It was the best ever compliment coming from a chef who was also brother of the groom at this last weekend’s wedding.

Especially as we see Ottolenghi as an inspiration, we were  extremely happy to graciously receive the compliment whilst totally acknowledging that we had an amazing location, ambiance and occasion on our side.

May we take this opportunity to compliment Ottolenghi on his culinary vision and flare that lead us on our journey of discovery in Middle Eastern cuisine; he is often the starting point of our Middle Eastern feasts. I’m sure he would recognise more that the odd dish in our repetoire but when something is so good why would you not use it!

When we are not catering for weddings and private functions you can often find us at festivals in our little gold trailer. We are regulars at Port Eliot, Bovey Tracey, Golowan and Lefrowda and at many other festivals in the South West.

We do sometimes take the trailer to private events too.
