The Somali Table

Duration: 3 hoursType: In-PersonPrice: $140

Due to its location and landmass, Somalia is a true culinary crossroad. Indigenous Somali regional cuisines woven with lasting Italian, South Asian, and Middle Eastern influences have resulted in a cuisine that is dynamic and unique. Join local chef Ifrah F. Ahmed in class, where she will teach you about the food of Somalia and how to make some of her favorite classic dishes. On the menu: xawaash-spiced lamb (braised lamb shanks with xawaash spice and cilantro garlic sauce); muufo (corn flatbread); fuul (mashed fava bean and tomato stew); and bariis (Somali-style rice).
