With its mild taste and ability to absorb flavors, matzo lends itself to many kinds of preparations. Irina will share one of her favorites: Matzo Brei, a satisfying fried matzo dish often served for breakfast during Passover. She’ll make a savory version with cheese and salsa, and a sweet take with cinnamon sugar. Then, learn to make Charoset, a spread of apples, dates, walnuts and raisins that is a traditional dish for the Passover Seder table – and serves as a delicious topping for the cinnamon-sugar Matzo Brei.
Vegetarian with dairy, eggs and gluten.
About the instructor: Irina grew up in Moscow, Russia. As a child, she learned to cook from her mother and grandmother, helping out in the kitchen by cranking their old-fashioned cast-iron meat grinder or stuffing piroshki. In 2016, Irina left Seattle for a more rural lifestyle in North Central Washington's Methow Valley. A nonprofit worker by day at Neighborhood House, she enjoys teaching Russian cooking classes in her free time through her business, Moscow Gourmet Kitchen. Irina's cooking blends influences from traditional Russian cuisine, the simple but hearty Soviet food of her childhood, her Ashkenazi Jewish background, her family's roots in Ukraine, and her husband's Siberian heritage.
