Join Nadia Tommalieh as she embarks on a culinary journey to the vibrant streets of Egypt! In this class you’ll dive into the world of kushari, a popular dish of rice, lentils, pasta, and chickpeas, topped with a spiced tomato sauce and crispy fried onions. No exploration of Egyptian street food is complete without ful medames—a hearty stew made from slow-cooked dried fava beans, herbs, and lemon. Also on the menu: feteer meshaltet, a flaky pastry that showcases the mastery of Egyptian baking. You’ll bake two versions of this dough: a savory one, and a sweet one with nuts, coconuts, and raisins. You’ll complete your culinary adventure with Sobia, a refreshing street drink made from coconut milk, rice, and rosewater, whose taste will transport you to the shores of the Nile.
