The Olive Oil Harvest

Duration: 3 hoursType: In-PersonPrice: $135

Join Nadia Tommalieh as she shares the beauty, importance, and tradition of the olive harvest and olive oil pressing across the Arab world. Olive oil is a staple in most culinary cultures, and in this class you’ll learn about the different flavor profiles of olive oil, the best temperatures for cooking, and how to repurpose flavor-infused oils. You’’ll cook an array of dishes traditional to celebrate the olive harvest season, before sitting down to feast on shorabet freekeh bil hamid w zeit al-zaytoon (citrusy freekeh and olive oil soup); musakhan (roasted Cornish hens with olive oil, caramelized onions, and sumac); salatet bandora bil a'ashab (tomatoes and herbs tossed in olive oil and sumac), as well as salset laban w na’ana (garlicky yogurt, mint, olive oil sauce). Yansoonnieh, an aromatic anise and olive oil sticky cake drenched in orange blossom syrup, will close out our meal, and our love letter to the majestic olive.
