Cooking Class - Persian Lamb Shank Feast

Create a classic Persian meal with Chef Faramarz.

In this informative cooking class, Chef Faramarz will share with you the traditions and techniques of classic Persian cuisine as it pertains to preparing lamb shank and a variety of traditional side dishes.

In addition to the main lamb dish, you'll learn to expertly prepare the customary fava bean rice, a vibrant mix of long grain rice, tender fava beans, and golden-hued saffron, as well as a vivid and tangy homemade beet yogurt and barley soup. Both the rice and the yogurt provide balance to the richness of the lamb and work equally well with other proteins.

I love going out for Persian food, but never would have known where to start if I tried to make it at home. Chef Faramarz has such a breadth of knowledge about the ingredients needed and the various classic dishes in Persian cuisine--I learned so much in the few hours I spent with him! His food is amazing, too--I loved the bread he made and even took some home to have with honey and butter the next day, as he recommended. I also couldn't believe how flavorful the vegan eggplant dish was! I'll for sure be creating some of the dishes again at home.
