The Persian Garden

Duration: 3 hoursType: In-PersonPrice: $140

Hafez, the celebrated Persian poet, often praised the serene allure of Persian gardens in his poetry. These lush gardens filled with herbs were the setting for elaborate tea parties where guests were invited to recline on intricately woven carpets and greeted with an array of delights that exemplify Persian hospitality. Join Omid Roustaei as he teaches you how to create your own Iranian garden party at home as you make sabzi khordan (fresh herb platter with feta, radish, walnuts); kelaneh (homemade flatbread filled with scallions and herbs); kuku kadu (summer squash frittata with herbs); roasted eggplant with maast-o-khiar (minty cucumber yogurt sauce); and sharbat albalu (sour cherry cordial).
