The New Persian Kitchen
18 Reasons
San Francisco, CA
Share this event:

Join Louisa Shafia, author of The New Persian Kitchen, in preparing a springtime meal bursting with seasonal produce, and flavored with delicate Silk Road spices including saffron, turmeric, dried limes, caraway seeds, dried mint, and sumac. Persian cooking has a history that stretches back over 2500 years, and many of the ingredients that were in use at the very beginning are still found in the modern Iranian pantry. Shaped by Iran's central position on the Silk Road, Persian cuisine has familiar elements from Indian, Chinese, Arabic, and Eastern European cooking, yet it has a character that is completely unique. Taste Louisa's fresh and healthy Persian-inspired recipes while learning about this ancient cuisine.

The menu will include:
Fresh Herb Platter with feta, radishes, walnuts, lavash
Turmeric Chicken with Sumac and Lime
Roasted Stuffed Artichokes with Mint Oil
Rice with Fava Beans and Dill
Shallot Yogurt
Naturally Sweet Dried Lime Tea
