This is a class for anyone who is interested in Middle Eastern cooking. Stuffed vegetables are a dish most associated with the Middle East in the popular mind. They are commonly called dolma, the Turkish word meaning "stuffed," but also the Arabic mahshi. Grape leaves, chard, and cabbage are stuffed with rice, ground meat, pine nuts, and spices, and then stewed in oil and tomato. Many vegetables are similarly stuffed and stewed or baked, such as squash, onion, tomato, eggplant, peppers, and even carrots.
For this class you is a step by step guide to make Mahshi "stuffing" with grape leaves the traditional Jordanian way (with ground beef). If you are a vegeterian there will be a little section on how to make vegetable stuffed grape leaves.
The class will be approximetly 1.5 hours long including cooking time. Coffee and tea will be served during breaks.
We hope that you would explore this class and learn a little more about Middle Eastern cuisine and traditional cooking.
