Demonstration & Tasting
Join Louisa Shafia, chef and author of the highly acclaimed Lucid Food: Cooking for an Eco-Conscious Life and recently released The New Persian Kitchen (both from Ten Speed Press), in preparing an autumn meal bursting with seasonal produce and delicate Silk Road seasonings. Persian cooking has a history that stretches back over 2,500 years, and many ingredients used in the very beginning are still found in modern-day Iranian pantries. Persian dishes contain familiar elements from Indian, Chinese, Arabic, and Eastern European cooking, yet with a completely unique character. Taste Louisa’s fresh and healthy Persian-inspired recipes while learning about this ancient cuisine.
On the Menu: Pomegranate Soup; Winter Squash Fritters with Rose Petals; Fresh Herb Platter; Turmeric Chicken with Sumac and Lime; Sweet Rice with Carrots and Nuts; Yogurt with Shallots.
Instructor: Louisa Shafia, Chef-Instructor and Cookbook Author
