Lean & Lebanese
Friday, July 12, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
Hands-On & Demonstration, $45
Located in the Levant and situated on the eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea, Lebanon boasts a unique history that has shaped its culture and exceptional cuisine, which deliciously embodies the Mediterranean Diet (featuring lean proteins, legumes, fermented dairy foods, nuts, seeds, vegetables, and fruits). Best of all, Lebanese cuisine is often nutrient-dense and quite light—especially during summertime, when looking good is just as much of a priority as feeling good. Let Registered Dietitian Jackie Arnett show you how these simple, tasty Lebanese dishes can satisfy your palate without sacrificing your health.
On the Menu: Samak Harra (Spicy Cilantro Tilapia); (Mudjara) Brown Rice, Lentil, and Caramelized Onion Pilaf; Muhammara (Roasted Red Pepper, Pomegranate, and Walnut Dip); Lebanese Fruit Cocktail with Ashta (Lebanese Cream), Rosewater, and Pistachio Sprinkles.
Instructor: Jackie Arnett, R.D., Cooking Instructor and Nutrition Consultant
