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. To learn more about how class will go visit our FAQ page.
There are two options for gathering ingredients for this class! You can shop for your own ingredients or we are happy to pre-measure ingredients and assemble them into a 4-serving kit. And if you like to sip wine while you cook, consider adding a lovingly paired bottle with your kit!
To get a jump start on class, you can preview the ingredients and equipment needed by following this link. One week before class we will send out a detailed shopping list, and a few days before class we will email you a detailed recipe packet and Zoom link. All classes are listed in Pacific Time.
