Chef Mab takes you to the rolling hills and impressive coastline of northern Iran with upscale flavors.

Explore the flavors of Persian cooking in this hands-on experience with Chef Mab. This menu features pomegranates and walnuts to bring the unique tastes of northern Iran to the table.

Start with salad-e Shirazi, a mix of cucumbers and tomatoes tossed in olive oil and lemon. Next, you'll prepare a Persian chicken stew with pomegranate and walnuts, served over rice with saffron and dried barberries, and tahdig — the crispy crust at the bottom of the rice pot. For dessert, you'll make sweet date balls with nuts and tahini.

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

Really wonderful instructor and class, and the result was great. In particular, I thought Chef Mab did a great job of introducing herself and Persian cuisine; and showing us how she was cooking while also fielding individual questions; and helping people out w/ substitutions. Really well done, overall.

I had such an amazing time! The experience was intimate and allowed for connections among the group but also super informative and of course...delicious!

LOVED the class, cooking in my own kitchen with my own pots, getting instruction from Chef Mab, hearing the questions, seeing the others cooking. What a wonderful experience!
