Ready for another hands-on culture-immersion cooking class? Let’s spice up our plates and palates! First, learn how to make the most stunning, brightly colored saffron rice pilaf  with sumac-marinated chicken.

For the sweet ending to our class – let’s make firni, a luscious, creamy rice pudding  sprinkled generously with cinnamon. And how about enjoying your creations with a glass of piping hot tea and a good doze of friendly chatter around the table?  You will learn a lot, have fun, and make new friends! Guaranteed! Don’t miss out!
