Special book signing and food tasting!
Tickets: $38 per person, $45 per couple (both options include one signed book)
This luscious and contemporary take on the alluring cuisine of Iran from cookbook author Louisa Shafia features 75 recipes for both traditional Persian dishes and modern reinterpretations using Middle Eastern ingredients. Louisa Shafia, author of the award-winning Lucid Food, explores her heritage while bringing a healthy and vibrant perspective to Persian recipes that might otherwise rely too heavily on white sugar and heavy oils for flavor. The New Persian Kitchen ($24.99) demystifies unfamiliar ingredients like rosewater, dried limes, and sumac; provides a comprehensive resources section; and offers helpful substitutions. The recipes–such as Jeweled Rice, Pomegranate Soup, and Saffron Ice Cream–range from starters to sweets and employ simple techniques and preparations, making this exotic, beautiful, and ancient cuisine accessible to the home cook.
Louisa Shafia’s unique style of fresh, Silk Road-inspired cooking has been featured in Yoga Journal, New York magazine, Whole Living, Every Day with Rachael Ray, the Washington Post, and Saveur. Her first cookbook, Lucid Food, was nominated for an IACP award. Look for Louisa on the Cooking Channel's Taste in Translation series, making Persian kebabs. Louisa lives in Brooklyn.
