Learn to Cook like a Syrian Jewish Grandma

Join Jennifer Abadi, author of A Fistful of Lentils: Syrian-Jewish Recipes From Grandma Fritzie’s Kitchen, to learn the basics (and secrets)of her family’s delicious recipes.

Using classic Syrian ingredients such as tamarind, bulgur wheat, sour cherries, allspice, and cinnamon, you will walk away from class understanding why Aleppoan cooking from the Levant is considered among the best Middle Eastern cooking in the world.

Menu may include schraab el temerhendy (tart tamarind “iced tea”); burghol (bulgur wheat spread with cumin, tomatoes, and tamarind); riz (Syrian rice with fried onions and pine nuts); fibbeh m’gerraz (meatballs with sour cherries and tomato paste); and beddah b’bandoorah (tomato stew with olives, cumin, and whole eggs).

This class is taught in a kosher kitchen and includes meat.
