For this introduction to the world of Arab baking and pastry we are thrilled to welcome chef Reem Assil, owner of the Bay Area’s beloved Reem’s bakeries and author of the cookbook Arabiyya: Recipes from the Life of an Arab in Diaspora. You’ll learn the science, art, and history behind the recipes, and you’ll make mu’ajinaat (savory pastries) from start to finish: fatayer sabaanikh (spinach and onion turnovers), sfeeha Ba’albekiyyeh (Baalbek-Style lamb, pomegranate, and pine nut turnovers), and laffat safarjal (quince and cheese rolls), all accompanied by a fattoush salad. Each ticket includes one copy of Reem's cookbook.
