Shaped by Iran’s central position on the Silk Road, Persian cuisine has familiar elements from Indian, Chinese, Arabic, and Eastern European cooking, yet it has a character that is completely its own. In this class, Omid Roustaei will show you how to prepare some of his favorite dishes for chilly winter days. On the menu: khoresh morgh-e torsh (braised chicken with herbs and walnuts); khoresh baghaleh ghatogh (fava bean and dill stew with turmeric poached eggs); and maast-o khiar (minty yogurt with cucumber, raisins, and rose petals).
This is a live, hands-on cooking class held in your kitchen via Zoom. Class is meant to be as interactive as it would be at our table, with the instructor teaching you how to prepare each recipe. Each class ticket is for one kitchen, and we welcome group cooking on the same screen. All recipes are designed for four servings.
