John Gregory Smith X Great Guns Social

Posted on November 1, 2017 by

From the Atlas Mountains to the Atlantic coast and through the royal kitchens of Fez, chef and best-selling author, John Gregory-Smith, invites you to join him on a culinary journey across Morocco at the newly opened Great Guns Social.

John has hand-selected some of his favourite feasting moments and combined them into a mouthwatering, four-course Moroccan menu, using exclusive recipes from his new book Orange Blossom & Honey.

Included in the ticket price is a selection of vegetarian mountain meze and mechoui roasted lamb; rich, paprika-infused royal lamb tagine; and finally John’s incredible pomegranate molasses chocolate cake. A welcome drink will be served on arrival, and we will also cooking an extra course of charred squid with preserved lemon dipping sauce, available on request.
