Middle Eastern Cusine - A Modern Approach
Time & Location
About the Event
This 4 hour Class will take you on a delicious voyage of discovery through Middle Eastern cuisine, leaving you with all the skills & techniques in order to whip out an incredible array of hot & cold mezze for the whole family to indulge in.
In a world of ready-meals and sauces claiming to be authentic, join me and let me show you how cooking from scratch tastes the best! Now you can experience varied and flavour-packed Middle Eastern cuisine first hand, and learn the entire cooking process for a number of dishes from start to finish in just a few hours.
Where possible we will be using local seasonal ingredients and I will give suggestions on how each recipe can be modified thoughout the seasons.
I will give you an introduction to fundamentals of proper spice blending – so you have a complete understanding of the use of spices and the essence of Middle Eastern cooking – and you also have the option to feast on your gourmet creations either at the end of class in a relaxed communal meal or take a good portion of each dish home with you!
This will be a whole group interactive class led by myself to ensure you can learn a good repetoire of dishes!
