Join us for a dinner where we do all the cooking! Each month we open the doors between our classrooms and seat 40 guests for a five-course family-style feast, featuring all the ingredients we’re excited about. This menu is a celebration of the immigrant stories that make America shine, and a chance to cook in solidarity with our Iranian neighbors. Chef Omid Roustaei will lead this special dinner, where he'll share family recipes and stories of his homeland.
