Try preparing Palestinian food for diners

Middle Eastern food could give a chefs menu a new range of options

Researching other culinary cultures can be a great source of inspiration for chefs looking to make something a little different for their menus.

McCormick's resident expert Chef Steve says this is one of his favourite methods of finding new avenues to prompt his inspirational recipes.

Countries in the Middle East have a very different range of food traditions from the UK, but are often dependant on culinary herbs, so caterers should still be able to make something different with what they already have lying around in the kitchen.

For instance, cook and author of Veggiestan: A Vegetable Lover's Tour of the Middle East Sally Butcher recommended a Palestinian maghluba dish in an article for the Guardian.

Maghluba translates as upside down and refers to the meat and vegetable elements of the dish being served on top of the rice.

It is also a popular method of preparation in the Middle East and is traditionally prepared with aubergine and lamb or chicken and cauliflower.
