Iranian Street Food

In this installment of our series on street food from around the world, we’ll be hitting the food stalls of Tehran! Join Omid Roustaei as he shares his favorites of baghali pokhteh (fava beans dressed with olive oil, vinegar, and hogweed powder); laboo, or hot beets in a sweet syrup — it’s as simple as it sounds; yeralma yumurta (smashed buttery potato, egg, feta, and mint wrapped in homemade lavash bread); and tahchin morgh ba zereshk (savory rice cakes with sweetened barberries and saffron chicken). Along the way you’ll brush up on the Persian method of making rice, and you’ll finish class with a proper street-food feast.

Persian Garden Party

Join Omid Roustaei for an end-of-summer garden party to celebrate the season’s bounty with light and refreshing traditional Persian treats. To start, you will learn how to prepare paloudeh (cantaloupe rosewater smoothie) and sekanjebeen (lettuce wedges with mint and vinegar syrup). To round out the meal you will finish with kashk bademjoon (eggplant spread with whey and garlic-mint sauce), shami-e lapeh (yellow split pea and beef patties), and traditional lavash flatbread to scoop it all up.
