Autumn is a time when Iranians celebrate friendships in recognition of the season of harvest and thanksgiving. Join Omid and learn how to prepare an autumnal Persian menu while experiencing Persian culture in the best possible way — with your taste buds. He’ll demonstrate how to prepare two warming dishes for the fall season: Khoresh Kadu Halvai (braised chicken and butternut squash in saffron broth) and Naan Barbaree (crusty Persian flatbread with nigella and sesame seeds).
