Winter Solstice (Shab-e Yalda in Farsi) is a significant holiday and a great time of celebration in Persian culture. The longest and darkest night of the year is a time when friends and family gather together to eat, drink and read poetry by Hafiz and Rumi. Fresh and dried fruits, nuts, tea, sweetened drinks, and various treats are offered to the guest. Pomegranates and watermelons are particularly significant and are always present at the Shab-e Yalda celebration.
Join Omid Roustaei in this winter solstice class as we prepare: Nan-o Panir-o Sabzi Khordan (crusty bread with fresh herbs and walnuts); Morgh-e Shekam Por (Saffron-glazed stuffed chicken with fruits and nuts); Salad Anar-o Khiar (pomegranate, mint, and cucumber salad); Sholeh Zard (saffron and rosewater rice pudding).
Hands-on class. Includes dinner. Class is limited to 12 people. Please note that event registration is non-refundable.
