Unintentionally Bohemian

I’ve added pictures of the finished library/entertainment area for anyone who is interested. You can see the gallery of before and after shots here.

The “grand” opening last night was a success and the area has proven itself as a cosy and very worthy area for entertaining small crowds. The library feels a little like a Turkish coffee house, and my guests seemed quite content to sit on the large cushions on the floor or the big reading chair of happiness. The food I made was Middle Eastern/North African themed, which was unintentional at first: cumin and cardamom are among my favourite flavours. The banquet consisted of Moroccan carrot salad, Tanzanian Pilau, potato salad, rainbow salad with dill and lemon pepper, kofka – a Persian sausage on a stick, beef kebabs, chicken kebabs with curry mayonnaise, and of course the obligatory sausage. I worked from 7am in the kitchen yesterday preparing the feast and it was worth it. It’s nice to have so many places to be creative.

    I looks like a great space. Well done! I also love cardamom, especially in strong coffee. It’s a wonderful treat.

    What a lovely place you’ve made! May you enjoy it fully.

    And I loved your party menu. I cook a lot of Middle Eastern foods, and will again soon because our Christmas Eve tradition is to have a big Syrian meal.
