Iranian Cuisine & Culture

– Preregistration Required –

“You have to taste a culture to understand it.”
Deborah Cater

Explore the cuisines and cultures of the world right from our farm kitchen. The Global Plate is a new culinary series bringing in food educators from far and wide to share their stories and recipes. We will celebrate the flavors unique to different regions of the world through the ultimate connector, food.

In this workshop, we will explore the flavors, cuisines and stories of Iran with our educators, Farah Kashef and Michelle Buchan. We will make three recipes distinct to Iranian culture…

– Persian Basmati Rice with Tahdeeg

– Bademjoon Khoresh

– Persian Salad

While we make these recipes, we will also learn about the customs surrounding these foods… Persian hospitality, taarof, the idea of Koresh, “hot” vs. “cold” foods, and more. We will end with a tasting of the dishes we created in class. Attendees will be provided with recipes, to take home and continue to enjoy the stories and flavors of Iran.

Date: Saturday, June 24th, 2017
Time: 1 – 4pm(ish)
Cost: $50 per person (includes materials & applicable taxes)
