Kurdish New Year — Newroz — is a spring celebration brimming with unique recipes and essential Middle Eastern ingredients, and Pinar is bringing these flavors of her childhood home into the classroom. Learn to make your own Kurdish feast of fresh-baked Lavash flatbread, Çiğ Köfte (bulgur patties with red pepper paste, spices and herbs), and Dew — a yogurt drink flavored with fresh mint.
Vegetarian with dairy and eggs.
About the instructor: Pinar was born in Diyarbakir in the south eastern region of Turkey. She lived in Istanbul for 17 years before following the love of her life all the way to Seattle. A former language teacher, she established a new teaching career in the U.S. in cooking which helped to ease her longing for her home country. She has cooked in Turkish restaurants, held pop-up cooking events, and taught cooking classes in and around Seattle. Pinar blends her Kurdish heritage with other ethnic traditions found in her Anatolian homeland. She loves to share her passion for food which originated in her mother’s kitchen and her father’s produce store.
