A layered tower of rice and vegetables flipped upside down when served, Maqluba is an impressive one-pot dinner dish popular throughout the Middle East. For Kurdish-American sisters Zozan and Sheelan, Maqluba holds a special place in their hearts as the centerpiece of family weekend dinners. In this class, they’ll cover the techniques required to layer, flavor and flip the Maqluba as they share stories from their family’s culinary traditions. For a bright side dish, they’ll prepare Kurdish Pomegranate Salad with seasonal vegetables.
Vegan and gluten-free.
About the instructors:
Kurdish-American sisters and avid cooks Zozan and Sheelan Shamdeen started Soozveen — their Mediterranean catering company — in 2013 after dreaming of owning a food business for years. Soozveen translates to “the promise of love” in Kurdish, their native language. It’s their guiding philosophy to share their family recipes and the stories behind each dish. Their food is prepared with love and contains a history passed down through generations of women in their family.
