Emrooz - Persian Cuisine that feeds your appetite and your soul!

About this Event

Hands-on Cooking with Chef Ojan Asadolahi, Owner of Emrooz Catering

From saffron to walnuts, barberries and fresh herbs; crunchy castles of basmati rice with fluffy insides; oh and don’t forget the pomegranate, enough juicy red jewels to bathe in- Iran is home to Persian Cuisine.

Persian food takes your taste buds on an adventure. The sour, sweet, and savory flavors dance across your tongue, dressed in all colors of the rainbow. Bright, yet balanced, Persian food, like the people of Iran, is comforting and approachable. These ancient ingredients and recipes represent generations of opening one’s door to their home to gather, share a meal, feed loved ones, and create moments where we realize as humans how similar we all are – nourished by connection and food. From the ancient Persian Empire to a modern day Iran, a profound history of poetry, art, landscapes, and people all lend themselves to this exotic cuisine and represent Iran’s rich, warm culture.

In this hands-on cooking class, Ojan will take you through a few of his favorite authentic Persian recipes.

Emrooz means today, and today is all that matters. So lets eat a plate of color and culture.

About the Instructor:

Ojan Asadolahi, like most of us, first entered the kitchen with a passion for eating. As he tasted his way through culinary school and professional kitchens, that passion grew to include feeding and serving others as well. In 2017, Ojan moved from Los Angeles (aka Tehrangeles) where there had been an abundance of Persian food, to Santa Cruz where he hungrily realized there was none. Motivated by his cravings and with the help of his Mother and Aunt, Ojan learned how to cook the food of my people and share those flavors, smells, colors and stories with Santa Cruz.
