Event description
An Introduction to Persian Cooking

About this Event

Cyrenians would like to invite you to this truly special masterclass and lunch led by Persian cooking expert Solmaz Eradat Oskoui. Solmaz lived for most of her childhood in a small town called Osku in the Azerbaijan region of Iran where she remembers food being at the heart of everything her family did. "Whether it be a small get together or a big family gathering, the patience, care and thought that went to creating every dish which seemed to take hours to prepare, was consumed within minutes and provided the comfort that everyone needed" she says. "This sense of coming together, cooking and sharing food with friends and family that I experienced whilst living in Iran is something that I love doing here in Edinburgh. The recipes I would like to cook with you during this class are some of my favourites and I have chosen them to be quick, adaptable and give a small taste into Persian cooking."

The class , which is suitable for all levels of cooking ability, will be a combination of demonstration, hands-on cooking and chat. At the end will all sit down family-style to enjoy our food and make new friends. There's sure to be plenty of leftovers so don't forget to bring tubs to take what you make home.

On the menu will be:

Starter: Kashke Bademjan, a famous Persian aubergine dip

Main: Dad’s Saffron Chicken

Dessert: Pistachio and lemon shortbread
