Although Diane Fikany has been a staple at our cooking classes for years, you may not know that she is Lebanese and is quite accomplished in the kitchen. She’s done a class for us before to rave reviews. This time she’s operating exactly where she shines and bringing along her sisters. They’re showing recipes that have been passed down from great-grandma, to grandma, to them. The kind of stuff that isn’t quite the same out of a cookbook or a classroom. Just like Grandma’s Polish Kitchen, these are family recipes, tried and true for generations. What an opportunity!
Hummus and Pitas - the garlic & lemony chickpea dip we all love. Diane will show us the path to perfect hummus.
Miniature Stuffed Grape Leaves- tiny, perfect little bites served with a cucumber, tomato & yogurt salad.
Fattoush - a delicious, fresh, crisp salad loaded with Mediterranean flavors, plenty of parsley, lemon, and pita bread—- after all —- Fattoush means bread salad.
Chicken, Chick Peas and Rice - A Lebanese comfort classic. It’s a wonderful one-pot meal, served inverted onto a platter.
After this delicious class, we’ll sample a variety of delicious Lebanese sweets.
