Take the mystery out of cooking Middle Eastern food when you learn to do it the authentic way, from start to finish.  Chef Sandy DiGiovanni recently made the trip-of-a-lifetime to Israel, and she is ready to share with you the stories (and recipes) from her incredible journey. 

As she explores and teaches the basics of Middle Eastern cooking and cuisine, your senses will experience the sights, sounds and smells of bright, vibrant and aromatic traditional dishes. She’ll show you how to use authentic spices as you learn to create an amazing array of appetizing and aromatic dishes.

She’ll teach essential cooking techniques as she shows you how to make some iconic appetizers, Baba Ganoush and freshly-made Hummus served with Pita Bread.  Next up is a beautiful Middle Eastern Panzanella Salad (Na’ama’s Fattoush).

Then, you’ll move on to our special entrée, Short Ribs with Za’tar and apricots served with Harissa and Chamoula Sauces. This comforting dish will be paired with warm Israeli Couscous. We’ll round out our exotic menu with Sumac and Za’tar Roasted Carrots and, of course, we’ll end with a magnificent dessert, traditional Halva & Tahini Brownies served with homemade Date Ice Cream. Seriously, who can resist that?!

You’ll don an apron and get to assist Chef Sandy with some of the cooking, too.  Don’t miss this rare opportunity to try your hand at creating these wonderful dishes!
