Classic Iranian Stews

Served alongside Iran’s beautifully elaborate rice dishes, different types of khoresh (stews) are the backbone of Persian cuisine. Join Omid Roustaei in this class as he recalls the dishes of his childhood and the deep warmth of memories that can live on in a stew pot. On the menu: khoresh ghormeh sabzi (beef and fresh herb stew with kidney beans and dried limes); khoresh fesenjoon (chicken stewed with pomegranate and walnuts); khoresh gojeh bademjan (eggplant and tomato stew with sour grapes); polo ba zaferan (rice with crispy saffron tahdig); and salad shirazi (cucumber and tomato salad in mint-verjuice dressing).

Persian Kebab House

Kebab houses started popping up across Iran over 100 years ago, and continue to attract visitors from all over the world who want to experience the flavor and aroma of these perfectly grilled meats. Join Omid Roustaei as he takes you on a tour of the traditional Persian kebab house, complete with all the fixin’s. You’ll make kabob koobideh, a minced lamb kebab, as well as kabob barg, made from sirloin beef tips, and joojeh kabob, a chicken kebab marinated in yogurt and seasoned with saffron. You’ll also learn to make the dishes that accompany the kebabs, including basmati ricenaz khatoon (a tangy fire-roasted eggplant and herb spread); sabzi khordan (a fresh herb platter with feta and radishes); and zeitoon parvardeh ( a classic pomegranate-olive tapenade).
