What you'll learn in this international cooking class:

An exciting introduction to Afghan cuisine! This 2.5 hour class starts off with a warm welcome to Nawida’s home where she will greet you with a cup of cardamom tea and a delicious homemade snack. 

You will learn to make burani bonjon-a flavorful dish of fried eggplant stewed with tomatoes, garlic, and green chilis, and topped with a tangy garlic-yogurt sauce and a sprinkle of dried mint. 

Next you will prepare tukhum bonjan, a traditional breakfast dish of eggs scrambled with fresh tomato, chilies, and garlic. 

For dessert you will make firni, a light and creamy milk pudding seasoned with cardamom and ground pistachios. 

Lastly, you’ll sit down as a group and enjoy the delicious food you’ve made. You’ll go home with a booklet of recipes and in-depth culinary info so that you can re-create these fantastic dishes at home.

Food Allergies: This menu includes dairy and tree nuts.

Cooking with Nawida:

During the years she lived in Afghanistan and Pakistan where she cooked for up to forty people as often as three times a day, Nawida evolved into a master multi-tasker who also puts attention into the details. Nawida will welcome you with cardamom tea and a selection of traditional savory snacks such as pumpkin stuffed flatbread, and tomato and chilli eggs. Nawida is a charming host with a bright, fun personality, and when you cook with Nawida, you will be impressed by her ability to finesse the many elements that make her Afghan recipes come together as a whole. At the end of the day you’ll go home newly inspired with all the recipes and a shopping guide to Nawida’s favorite food markets.

All "taste of" workshops include a welcome-snack and beverage, 1.5 hours of hands-on cooking instruction, a small meal, and a booklet of recipes and in-depth culinary info.
