We are very excited to invite you to a virtual cooking Masterclass on Wednesday, June 2 at 6pm.
An experienced chef and cooking instructor will instruct us on how to make one the most popular Turkish / Arabic / Kurdish meals:
- Lahmacun: “a round, thin piece of dough topped with minced meat (most commonly beef or lamb), minced vegetables and herbs including onions, garlic, tomatoes, red peppers, and parsley, and spices such as chili pepper, paprika, and cinnamon, then baked.”
- Soğan Salatası: (Onion Salad)
- Ayran: (Yogurt Drink with Fresh Mint)
Fee: $25 (per household: whoever is in your kitchen at the time of the class can join). After you RSVP, you will be taken to a payments page from which you can make the payment via PayPal.
Detailed recipes and instructions will be shared before the event. Together these three items will make a delicious light summertime meal.
