Acclaimed chef Shane Delia (Maha, Maha East) has just dropped a brand new cooking show called A Middle East Feast, available to watch over on SBS Food on Thursday nights and SBS OnDemand. Taking inspiration from the show, Delia is extending the culinary fun beyond what's on screen, hosting a series of weekend lunches inspired by the show's weekly-changing guest chef lineup.

Over at Maha East every Saturday (except for July 31) and Sunday over the coming weeks, A Middle East Feast will bring the show's menus to life, via a multi-course feed that clocks in at $65 per person. Coming up is a menu inspired by Episode 6's guest, Ehud Malka (The Left-Handed Chef), available on Sunday, August 1. Expect dishes like grilled Iraqi flatbread, smoked hummus with mushrooms and almonds, roast lamb rump paired with a za'atar jus, carob-glazed carrots finished with toasted hazelnuts and an Israeli milk pudding for dessert.

The following weekend's offering is still under wraps, though it'll be guided by whoever stars on Episode 7. Previous editions have centred around names like Tom Sarafian (Little Andorra, Bar Saracen) and Alimentari's Linda Jones, with plenty more masters of Middle Eastern cooking to come. Bookings are a must — you can check out the upcoming menus revealed each week here.
