Greek-Lebanese chef Fahd Kassem and Elina Kakourou got together in order to “birth” a shared idea: to express their solidarity to the people of Lebanon and particularly its artists who, despite extremely adverse conditions in their country, do their best to stay there, to continue to create and “give birth” to art in all of its forms.
Genno Limited consists of a kibbeh masterfully prepared by Fahd Kassem, served on a slat of olive wood created especially for this purpose by Elina Kakourou.
Each purchase of Genno Limited was an invitation to join us at Six d.o.g.s, in central Athens, on Saturday 4/12/2021, to collect your olive wood platter and taste the kibbeh (part of a three-course menu), complemented by a glass of wine produced in Lebanon.
All profits will go towards supporting an artist living and working in Lebanon.
If you were unable to attend but would still like to support our cause and purchase Genno Limited, you will receive the olive wood platter, along with a photograph of the creation (since we cannot send the kibbeh itself!), as well as the secrets of its recipe.
This year’s partnership to usher in 2022 is a multi-sensory creation, and an ode to the “birth” of things, free of fears and limitations.
The three-course menu: 1. red lentil and carrot soup with turmeric and za'atar croutons 2. fried kibbeh & ariani-lime shot vegetarian option: pumpkin and potato kibbeh 3. Baklava panna cotta
Please note that each piece of olive wood is handcrafted from different pieces of olive wood, resulting in unique wood grain patterns with some variation in color and size! With that in mind, please note the jewelry received will differ from the picture on display! The olive wood used to create this piece is ethically sourced from the city of Sparta, located in the region of Laconia, in southern Greece. Sustainable olive wood comes from olive trees that no longer produce fruit and are continuously replaced.
Make sure you remove all pieces of jewelry with olive wood before showering, applying lotion and hand sanitizer, make-up, hairspray, perfume and before any sports activity. If the olive wood gets wet, let it dry naturally. Store it safely to avoid any scratches or cuts.
