If you're looking to treat yourself to a meal you'll be thinking about long after it's over, head to Nour in Surry Hills on Wednesday, May 25, and let two of Sydney's most renowned chefs combine their expertise on a historic trip through Arabic and Sicilian cuisines in A Taste of Siqilliya.

Due to the Arabic rule over Sicily in the late 1st century, there are many ties between Arabic culture and Sicilian food. Nour's Head Chef, Luca Lonati, will be exploring these ties with the help of Lino Sauro of Olio Kensington Street through a one-off collaborative set menu.

Diners will begin with a Pomegranate Americano, created using Amaro Averna, Campari, pomegranate shrub and soda. From there, the feast will open with black rice arancini, sea urchin, swordfish pastrami and chickpea panelle.

Course two will feature lamb stigghiola and yellowfish tuna tartare, before the centrepieces of the set menu are brought out. These decadent mains will feature Trapani-style pesto ravioli with a butter emulsion, stuffed wagyu beef and a cheesy eggplant parmigiana made with halloumi and bandurah harrah.

Concluding the affair is dessert combining almond milk couscous, saffron meringue and raisin gelato, paired with Pallini limoncello.

Reservations are available for $150 per person via Nour's booking page.
