Introduction to Persian Cooking

Salam & Welcome to the Kitchen of Color & Aroma!

In this workshop, we will go on a distinctive journey of fascinating tastes grounded in our rich culture. First, we’ll introduce the children to some popular spices used on a daily basis in a Persian kitchen, and will review Persian cooking techniques.  Then we are going to cook together! We will be meeting once a week for 75 minutes on Zoom, in our kitchens. You’ll receive the the grocery list and necessary kitchen tools for each week prior to each session, so you have everything ready to go! 

Join us for a memorable experience filled with exceptionally tasty dishes!
