Tired of searching for a truly "authentic" dining experience? It doesn't get any more authentic than being invited directly into a fantastic immigrant cook's kitchen. Be immersed in a new culture and learn to cook Afghan dishes from scratch. You'll be warmly greeted with a cup of cardamom tea and delicious snacks, then guided through the preparation of a decadent four-course meal. You'll make mantu, the spectacular dumplings at the center of every Afghan party; quabili pilau, the dramatic lamb and rice pilaf dish; burani bonjon, which is fried eggplant stewed in tomatoes, garlic, and green chilis; and firni, a milk pudding seasoned with cardamom and pistachios. All of your hard work will culminate with you sitting down as a group to enjoy the mouth-watering feast that you prepared. The deliciousness doesn't end there--you'll leave with a booklet of family recipes, a starter kit of specialty ingredients, and the inside scoop on your host's favorite markets to prolong the experience.
Note: Each workshop has a maximum of five attendees. This menu includes dairy, eggs, tree nuts, and wheat. The exact meeting location will be provided upon confirmation of booking.
