In the rest of the world rhubarb’s sour flavor is typically moderated with sugar or strawberries, but Iranian cooking uses rhubarb in a way that highlights its sourness. Khoresh Rivas is a perfect example: a Persian beef stew flavored with abundant herbs and fresh rhubarb — both of which are in plentiful supply in spring in the Pacific Northwest. In this class, Omid Roustaei teaches you to prepare khoresh rivas, Persian steamed basmati rice with crispy saffron tahdig, and Tokhm-e Sharbatie, a chia seed beverage with rose water and lime.
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!
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.
