    Hands-on Egyptian Cuisine

    If your everyday, all-American meals are starting to bore you (and your family, your friends, and even your dog), it might be time to learn an exciting cuisine from another part of the world. How about Egypt? In this class you will learn to make a tasty three course Egyptian meal including Baba Ghanouj, Salatet Sabanekh, and Lahma. You will start with the Baba Ghanouj in which you will pure, bake, and then roast eggplant with sesame seed tahini, lemon juice, garlic and salt. You will follow with a spinach salad tossed with a house dressing and topped with grilled scallions, pine nuts, and roasted garlic. Then you will move to medallions of pounded tenderloin stuffed with two kinds of cheese and seasonings rolled into balls, baked, and topped with a tangy onion, garlic, lemon juice, and nutmeg sauce. After all that delicious and fun hard work, you'll sit down and enjoy the fruits of your labor with a beverage and end with a cup of Arabic coffee. Look how cultured you are.
