Gather around the table and create flavorful dips and spreads from the Middle East.

The culinary traditions of the Middle East center around sharing meals, and a mezze platter filled with bold herbs and spices and creamy textures makes the perfect centerpiece. In this hands-on cooking class with Chef Pooja, you'll learn how to build one from scratch.

First, learn how to achieve the ideal texture of hummus and balance the flavors of muhammara — a classic roasted red pepper dip. Then, whip up a creamy labneh dip and herbaceous tabouli. Chef Pooja will also teach you how to bake pita chips to serve with your array of dips and spreads.

Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

Chef Pooja was fantastic! She had done the right amount of prep work so that we could spend the majority of our time doing hands-on cooking and eating the delicious food we prepared. Her recipes were clear and she was great about walking us through the steps. She also has extensive knowledge about the food and the ingredients she uses, so we felt like we learned a lot about the dishes themselves. Overall, a 5-star experience, and it felt like a quantum leap forward in our ability to produce tasty Indian food at home!

Chef Pooja was warm, friendly and a great teacher! She gave us all the tips on where to find the best paneer, how to whip up our own garam masala blend, and all the food we made was delicious with complex and layered flavors. So yum! Thank you so much Chef Pooja!!!
