Persian food is poised to be the next hot thing on the culinary scene. But what is Persian food exactly? In this class, we will start with a short audio visual lecture as a general intro to Persian cooking: the philosophy of ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ food; trademark ingredients; quintessential flavorings, and the classic types of Iranian dishes.

We will then move on to the hands-on portion of class and learn how to make a batch of “Persian Mulberry Confection” — a delightful sweet called “tut” in Farsi, which literally translates to ‘mulberry’ — a staple confection offered at weddings, celebrations, and other festive gatherings.

This sweet bite-sized Persian nibble is made with ground almonds, sugar, cardamom and rosewater, mixed into a dough, and formed in the shape of a mulberry — thus, its name. It even gets a little pistachio stem. Very cute!

The ingredients are few and the end result is a festive, visually appealing and decidedly toothsome treat.

Don’t miss out on this delicious introduction to Persian cooking and pick up a dazzling and delicious culinary skill.
