The cuisine of the Middle East is a delight for vegetarians and vegans with zesty dips, aromatic roasted vegetables with sumac and spiced flatbreads, all using the best seasonal vegetables and herbs.
On this evening cookery course you will learn to create a delicious mezze of your own. We will make dishes such as:
- Turlu Turlu with Summer Roasted Vegetables
- Zataar (a fragrant mix of spices and herbs)
- Lavash (Lebanese flat bread)
- Muhamarra (a dip made from beetroot, nuts and bread)
- Freekeh with fresh herbs
You'll learn how to use traditional spices, herbs and flavours from the Mediterranean and the Middle East.
The class is a mixture of demonstration and hands on participation.
You will finish the evening with a shared mezze of everything we have cooked, with specially selected organic wine or fruit juice. You will be given a recipe file of all the dishes made so you can recreate them at home.
Time: 6:30 - 9:00pm
Thanks to Rachel and Jan for a great class – I really enjoyed it and promise to start mixing those mezzes just as soon as I can – I have at least made a good start by sharpening all our knives!
Very healthy and tasty food. I like that it was simple to make and that I got to try spices and flavours I've never used before.
The food was delicious! It was really exciting to try so many new things. It felt really authentic
