Tony Kitous, the founder of Comptoir Libanais Group, has partnered with the celebrated events designers, Admirable Crichton to create the UK's first high-end, large scale Middle Eastern catering company - Feasts from the Middle East.
After over 20 years in the F&B sphere, Kitous has capitalised on his unrivalled passion and wealth of knowledge within the sector and brought to life an idea he has been working on for years. The launch of Feasts from the Middle East is the biggest venture for the group since the opening of Comptoir Libanais 10 years ago.
Kitous said, “I love food and I love entertaining so combining two of my favourite passions to create our new catering company has been really exciting. My dream has always been to see everyone enjoying Middle Eastern food as we do back home, where our warm hospitality goes hand in hand with a generous spirit.”
Feasts from the Middle East specialise in mezze; small plates of food that are perfect for sharing. The mezze dishes are joined by opulent dishes of roasted lamb, grilled meats and rice dishes, as well as delicious plant based dishes suitable for vegetarians and vegans before a mix of rich and perfumed sweet treats are served.
Kitous has formed a partnership with The Admirable Crichton, the celebrated event design specialist, to create the new offer that will bring the best food and hospitality of the Middle East and North Africa to events, product launches, award ceremonies, weddings and private parties.
Whether it is catering for an intimate dinner party of four people to a decadent wedding celebration of 4,000 the team is fully equipped to meet the needs of every customer.
The Admirable Crichton has unrivalled experience of the world of events and event management working with some of the top venues in London and across the UK including the V&A, Somerset House, The Design Museum, Blenheim Palace and Hatfield House.
Anis Asghar, chief executive of The Admirable Crichton, said, “Feasts from the Middle East is an incredibly exciting project. Food brings people together, so what better way to bring such delicious and Middle Eastern dishes to life than through this partnership.
'We’re delighted to be working with Tony and his team on this project to ensure that authentic Middle Eastern cuisine comes alive in some of the best venues and finest events across Europe.”
Kitous concluded, “I want people to fall in love with the Middle East – its bold flavours and welcoming, generous traditions and I want to share them with you, your family, friends, colleagues and clients”.
