Thousands of beautiful Morocco: Paprika and chickpea salad with goat cream cheese and lamb kohl

Last month the cooking school in the Medienhafen opened in Düsseldorf. The kitchen is huge, the ambience totally great and the equipment really perfect. And the location first! Take a look through the offer - I'm very enthusiastic about the selection.

At the opening I was together with other bloggers from the region of the cooking school and their cooperation partner Gemini to a delicious Evening under the slogan Thousand Morocco invited. The namesake of course was Tina from tinastausendschön , who planned and prepared the evening for us.
At four stations we put together a wonderful oriental menu. Together with the dear Mo I was able to take care of the appetizer. Tina had also not let it peel us a huge bowl of chickpeas ... But I have to say: Although this is really ne stupid work, it is worth the taste totally! And since the simple, yet taste-intense appetizer convinced me so much, I had to imitate them directly at home and serve them as a dinner with lamb köfte.

Together with something hummus stirred together quickly and a fresh flat bread, all this was enough for about 4 servings, but makes sure also great on a buffet or in a multi-course menu. I'm just so impressed by the simplicity and the great taste - it will certainly give more often in the near future - despite chickpea peeling ...

Many thanks to Tina, Patrick von Zwilling and the cooking school in the media port for the nice invitation and the nice common and informal evening! And then many thanks to the best table neighbors The boys cook and bake, Pottlecker, Enchanting kitchen pleasure, and the team of Springlane.

And here are the recipes to the menu Thousand beautiful Morocco :
