A taste of Persia: Iranian cookery demonstration and lunch with MaziMas
Sat 11 February 2017, 12:00 – 15:00 GMT
The last few years have seen a remarkable rise in the popularity of Persian food, with best-selling cookery books devoted to it, and supermarkets stocking ingredients like sumac and rosewater. Food provides a unique window into a culture, and we're delighted to announce an exciting collaboration with pop-up cooking collective MaziMas, whose recipes have featured in The Guardian.
In a first for the New Town Cookery School, we will have a demonstration of some classic Persian dishes, led by MaziMas chef Zohreh Shahrabi. It will be followed by a three course buffet lunch, and all attendees will receive a booklet of recipes and ingredients.
Zohreh sees cooking as a kind of art, where the pan becomes your canvas and the colours of the dish are added with spices and herbs. So come and be inspired - get a flavour of Iran!
This event is part of the Edinburgh Iranian Festival 2017.
Early Bird Tickets are priced at £20 + booking fee, and are available until midnight on 7th January.
