Join Deshira in preparing a wonderful Albanian dish for her online cookery class! This is your chance to learn a brand new cuisine, support an amazing cause, and eat great food.
The class will be conducted as an interactive virtual cook-along. All participants will be sent an Eventbrite confirmation email with a list of ingredients and quantities needed for the recipe, the equipment needed for the class, and a Zoom meeting link. If you do not receive the confirmation email please check your spam folder. If you are still missing information about the class please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Classes usually range from 1.5-2 hours long. The chef will then lead the group through the recipe; stopping frequently to answer questions, share anecdotes, and provide feedback on your dishes!

Message from Deshira: “My name is Deshira, and I come from Albania which is located in the South-East of Europe. Albanian cuisine is representative of the Mediterranean diet, based on the importance of olive oil, fruits, vegetables and fish. I started cooking when I was nine years old because my mother got sick and spent three months in hospital. So, I was “on duty” taking care of my little brother and dad. I remember the first dish I made was my favourite Albanian dish called “byrek,” made with lots of pastry filled with mince, cheese, or spinach. I was brought up in a culture where sharing a meal is a very important way of connecting with others and integrating in the society. With all the problems I’m experiencing with the Home Office my passion for cooking is an amazing way to stay positive through it all.”
