    @Lollybags:  Those all sound so crazy to me!  I don’t know what all of that is…

    I personally would eat the beef, but I think salmon would be a good option.  It’s a pretty safe fish for most people.  Either chicken dish will be fine, people can always ask for the vegatarian dish if they are not up for being adventurous.

    That lamb sounds SO GOOD. I’d like two plates of that!

    And I’d be a fan of the top chicken option.

    @Lollybags:  Yep, I’m in the US.  I at least understand all the main meat options 🙂

    I think I clarified some items that people might not be familiar with!
     
    Middle Eastern Fried Chicken, soused eggplant (pickled eggplant), tomato and cumin salsa
     
    Lemon Pepper Chicken, leaves, gremolata (like pesto, made with parsley, garlic, lemon)
     
    Teriyaki Chicken with mayonnaise, pickled vegetables 
     
    Slow roasted Pork Shoulder, carrot and ginger chutney (like a jam), aioli (mayo), coriander (a spice)
     
    Slow cooked Lamb Shoulder, lavender, dill, garlic, verjuice (an acidic juice, used to make a bright flavored sauce), chickpeas, labne (Turkish yogurt, thick like Greek yogurt)
     
    Baked Atlantic Salmon, tapenade (dip made of olives) heirloom tomatoes 

    I think the Middle Eastern chicken and the pork shoulder would be best! I love the idea of a more Middle Eastern influenced menu! Such great flavors! I’m sure many guests will try everything!

    @kenziemt: I love that Middle Eastern chicken dish, and I think the salmon would be good as well. I’m not a big pork eater, but I know lamb is pretty popular in Australia, so salmon or lamb is fine!

    The preps sound so good. I love the Middle Eastern tinges.
