Ahmad will teach you 3 of his favourite vegetarian Lebanese dishes followed by a sit down meal.
Message from Ahmad: “My name is Ahmad and I’m from Lebanon. I was shot by two bullets while I was working as a paramedic for the Lebanese Red Cross 10 years ago, so now I’m in a wheelchair. My hobbies include wheelchair basketball, swimming and cooking. I gain so much pleasure from cooking, I love the smell of freshly prepared food – especially when it contains garlic and coriander! Since Lebanon is located in the heart of the Middle East by the Mediterranean sea, its food combines the tastes and traditions of several civilisations and Arab cuisines. I look forward to teaching you the secrets of Lebanese cooking!”
Thank you to SEIDs for so kindly hosting us.
This is a family style cookery class where the group collectively prepares several dishes. The chef will divide the class into groups with each one responsible for creating 1 or 2 of the dishes. Each participant is free to move from one recipe to the next throughout the evening so that everyone can get a sense for all of the dishes.
Maghmour (Lebanese Moussaka)
