Salt some french fries -- delicious. Pepper some chicken noodle soup -- it's as if you have a new meal. But there's more to spices and seasonings than salt and pepper. Moroccan cuisine depends on flavor combinations. In addition to salt and pepper, ginger, turmeric, cumin, cinnamon, and a variety of other spices accentuate a dish. This hands-on cooking class demystifies these spices, and teaches students how and when to use them, ultimately creating a comfortable working relationship between you and the spice. By the end of the class, you'll feel at home in Casablanca -- it’ll be the beginning to a new friendship. Note: A glass of wine per person is included. Your cooking menu will include of sample of the following dishes:
- Chicken Tagine with Apricots
- Fish Tagine with Olives and Preserved Lemons
- Couscous with Pistachios and Rose
- Grilled Pepper Salad
- Carrot Salad
