Ahmad will teach you 4 of his favourite 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!”

Please note that Mercato Metropolitano is a vibrant, bustling market place which can become very noisy. If you have trouble hearing you might like to consider classes at our other venues.
This is a family style cookery class where we will collectively prepare 3 or 4 dishes. The chef will divide the class into groups with each one responsible for creating 1 of the dishes. You are also free to move around during the class to learn about the other dishes. The chef will recap each of the dishes throughout the evening and at the end of the class so that everyone can learn about all of the dishes.
