Event Details

During Ramadan we have the opportunity to join a Lebanese family for a traditional Iftar feast (breaking of the fast).

I first met the Afiouny family half a lifetime ago when I was invited to dinner by a family member. I still remember Hala’s chicken rice. And her charming children Jinan Mohammed, Sophie and Tarek and their dad Jimmy who started Nut Roasters in the 1970s  (continuing a family business begun in Lebanon in 1925)

The children are grown up now, have taken over the family business which we have visited often for Gourmet Safaris as well as filming for Food Safari.

Jinan has recently opened Café Levant in Greenacre, and texted me offering to host a special dinner of many traditional dishes for Gourmet Safaris during Ramadan. Yes!!!!

We are offering this at cost because we feel it’s in the spirit of this unique time of the year in the Muslim calendar.

Jinan, Sophie and mum Hala will host us, explaining tradition and dishes.

Spaces are limited.

Please note – We need to seated before dusk so we can break the fast together. Please be there by 5.15pm

Reminder – no alcohol

How does a gift certificate work?

Our Gourmet Safaris gift certificates are valid for 12 months and can be used on any of our safaris. You can nominate part or all of the amount of a safari. Safaris range in price from $130 to $165. Bookings can then be made online ​or over the phone ​by calling (02) 8969 6555 by the recipient using the gift certificate number.

Do I have to nominate which tour my friend receiving the certificate attends?

No – the beauty of this system is that you give your friend an inspired present and they can choose which Safari and date​ suits them.

Do I need to be vaccinated to do a tour?

Yes, we require all our attendees to be fully vaccinated

Can I buy gift certificates for more than one person at a time?

Of course. This often happens around Christmas and is easily done in one transaction. You will have a Continue Shopping prompt and be able to fill in details for as many as you’d like.

Why do you need my friend’s mobile number and email address?

This just makes it easier for us if you would like the certificate sent by us to the recipient with your message.

Can I change my booking?

Our terms are “bookings are final at time of payment” but if we receive sufficient notification we can usually make changes for you. (Obviously the more notification the better). Unfortunately if we are notified in the week leading up to the tour, we would be unable to change/cancel/transfer your booking (unless we have people on a wait list and they are able to attend). Bookings are transferrable so if you are unable to attend you can transfer the booking to someone else.


Why are Gourmet Safaris Gift certificates the perfect gift?

We find most people treasure experiences over gathering more stuff. A Gourmet Safari opens up new and delicious worlds and is always a fun day out, whether people are dedicated cooks or just love exploring new flavours and places.

Does Safaris director Maeve attend all the safaris?

As many as she can but each safari is led by experienced guides who have grown up with the food you’ll be exploring. Many live in the neighbourhoods the safaris visit which gives our tours a unique edge. You’re welcome to email or call Safaris manager Suzy to check which safaris Maeve will be attending. or 02 8969 6555.
