What you'll learn in this culinary (meals) class:

We are obsessed with the flavors of Persian cooking, which teems with an abundance of fresh herbs, sour and sweet ingredients, and fragrances that make you heady (saffron, rose petals!). Join us as we explore some of the ingredients and cooking techniques that make the brilliantly-hued and -seasoned dishes of Iran so marvelous to cook and eat.

  • Herb Kookoo with Barberries (savory egg dish, deep green with herbs)
  • Persian Rice with Golden Tahdig (a crispy crust)
  • Saffron Chicken Khoresh (stew)
  • Cucumber Yogurt Dip with Raisins and Walnuts
  • Pistachio-Stuffed Molten Dates with Saffron-Rose Ice Cream
Please make sure to ring the outside buzzer, even if the front door is open, so we know you are arriving!

School Notes:
You’ll receive a complete recipe packet and enjoy a full sit-down meal at the end of class with your classmates. Our classes are BYOB, and you are welcome to bring a bottle to share at the sit-down meal.

Our classes are hands-on, coupled with demonstration-style teaching. Everyone is situated at their own cutting board/chef’s knife station around a large wooden worktable that accommodates the whole class (10 people max). We work together as a group, with the chef at the head of the table.

We focus on knife skills, preparing ingredients for cooking, and we strive to find every opportunity to offer you a hands-on experience at the stove and at your station, all within the spacial parameters of a single stove/family-style kitchen. We ask for volunteers to assist in all cooking.

Refund Policy
We have a firm 48-hour cancellation policy to ensure that we have enough time to re-fill your seat with another student. For cancellations prior to the 48-hour mark, we are happy to offer credit for a future class.

While it is not in our nature to say no, we are not able to offer credit/refund for last-minute illnesses or work-related conflicts. However, you are always welcome to send someone in your place, because we understand these things do happen.
