Served alongside Iran’s beautifully elaborate rice dishes, different types of khoresh (stews) are the backbone of Persian cuisine. Join Omid Roustaei in this class as he recalls the dishes of his childhood and the deep warmth of memories that can live on in a stew pot. On the menu: khoresh ghormeh sabzi (beef and fresh herb stew with kidney beans and dried limes); khoresh fesenjoon (chicken stewed with pomegranate and walnuts); khoresh gojeh bademjan (eggplant and tomato stew with sour grapes); polo ba zaferan (rice with crispy saffron tahdig); and salad shirazi (cucumber and tomato salad in mint-verjuice dressing).
