What better way to experience the Iranian way of life by learning how to cook some traditional Iranian food?
A big part of the families’ daily routine is cooking, if you are interested, you can make yourself helpful in the kitchen and cook traditional Iranian recipes together with my wife Fahime.
The Iranian cuisine is nothing like what is being served in most Iranian restaurants. Forget about rice and kebab; Fecenjon (pomegranate walnut stew), Kashke Bademjan (eggplant stew), Ash (noodle soup), coco (small vegetable or potato pancakes) and local dishes like boz ghorme (bread soup with lamb) are just some examples of the delicious dishes you can learn to make.
And this way you can take something home with you and remember your trip by cooking Iranian food at home.
It works like this:
You can pick a traditional meal you like – maybe you already have a favourite one that you tried on your way here. If you don’t have a favourite, we can help out with some ideas. After this you and Fahime will prepare the meal together in our big kitchen. Fahime will explain to you what spices to use, how to cook/fry/boil the food and how to prepare the traditional meal. Afterwards we will of course celebrate your creation by eating it together.
Doesn’t it look delicious?
