Hailing from Homs, Syria, this mother and son duo are excited to take us on a Syrian culinary excursion right here in Somerville. In this class, Samah will teach us how to make Malfouf, stuffed cabbage leaves filled with cumin,vinegar, mint, beef, and rice pressure cooked in a flavorful broth until tender. Sam explains that without a pressure cooker, his mom covers her stockpot with heavy rocks on top of a lid to help lock in the steam. Meaning “rolled” in Arabic, these cabbage “cigars” will be served with a simple yogurt dip and are sure to make your mouth water. We’ll taste Banadora, a tomato based soup with vermicelli and meat seasoned with Syria’s famous aleppo chili. For dessert, be wowed with Namoora, a semolina based cake sometimes flavored with nuts or rosewater. For those who had a pasta making phase, and now have semolina flour sitting in their pantry, this is an excellent class to expand your pantry and your culinary repertoire! Class will be taught in English and Arabic. Get your tickets today!
