Event description
Les Dames d'Escoffier San Diego Chapter is proud to present: Celebrating Nowruz and Cooking with Dame Laura Bashar

About this Event

Laura Bashar is a cookbook author, food photographer and food blogger. She has been writing on her blog, Family Spice, since 2008. Laura is half Persian and lives in San Diego with her husband and 3 children.

The first day on the Iranian calendar (Nowruz/Norouz/Noruz) falls on the first day of spring, aka the spring equinox. The celebration of Nowruz dates back over 3000 years ago during the Zorastrian rule of the Persian Empire. It is one of the few holidays that is commonly celebrated in the Middle East no matter what religious affiliation. The festival of Nowruz would follow with the new year and spring, bringing with it the rebirth of nature. Nowruz traditions and ceremonies are symbolic representations of two ancient concepts: the End and the Rebirth; or Good versus Evil.

Laura will discuss the traditions of Nowruz, including the sofreh haft sin, and the table setting of seven ’S’s. She will share her family’s traditions for this holiday and the foods traditionally served for the Nowruz dinner. She will demo and prepare kuku sabzi, a Persian herb frittata.
