Sfeeha yafawiyeh is a traditional Palestinian pastry made with dough that is rolled thin, stuffed, twisted into a spiral, and baked with olive oil. These little twirls are a showstopping addition to any feast, and in this class Nadia Tommalieh will teach you how to make traditional Yafawiyeh dough and a variety of savory and sweet fillings. On the menu: sfeeha yafawiyeh (spiced beef and onion-stuffed pinwheels); yafawiyeh bil jebneh wa za’atar (akawai cheese and zaatar-stuffed pinwheels); and nabulsi tamriyeh (pocket pastries stuffed with semolina pudding, fried and dusted with powdered sugar and pistachios). You’ll enjoy your freshly made pastries with khiar bil na’na (yogurt mint sauce) and salatet jarjeer w shamander (arugula, beets and pine nuts salad with olive oil and pomegranate molasses dressing).
