Description

Based on the concept of “hot and cold” – whether food creates energy or whether it has a cooling effect on the body – Persian cuisine has a rich history that encapsulates centuries of traditions and techniques. Join Omid as he takes you on a journey of the rich flavors of his home country and demonstrates some of his favorite dishes. You’ll learn techniques for making a slow-cooked stew and how to make perfect, fluffy rice with the coveted crispy bottom known as Tahdig.

Vegetarian with dairy, eggs and gluten.

About the instructor: Omid was born and raised in Tehran and spent his early childhood by the Caspian Sea building sandcastles, flying kites and riding his banana-seat, high-handlebar bike. He has taught cooking classes with PCC for over 15 years, cooked as a private chef and works as a psychoanalyst by day. Omid is excited to share his love of the Persian culture and traditions as he takes you on a culinary journey to experience Iran’s unique and rich cuisine through storytelling and humorous anecdotes from his childhood.
