Palestinian Recipes from the Cookbook Falastin
October 11 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm$7
Join Co-op staff member, Erin Majors, and former Co-op Board member, Jim Hutcheon, for an evening of preparing delicious dishes from the Palestinian cookbook Falastin. This cookbook contains 120 fabulous recipes as well as many gorgeous photographs and a history of Palestinian cuisine. The cookbook contains both meat and vegetarian recipes, but the dishes we prepare will all be vegetarian and may contain dairy, wheat, and eggs. You will receive a packet of recipes to take home with you when you come to the class, and you can also order the cookbook ahead of time if you wish: https://www.orcabooks.com/book/9780399581731.
Erin says: Every recipe I’ve made from this cookbook has been incredible. The dishes are layered with flavor, color, and texture. I borrowed the cookbook from Jim and as soon as I made two of the recipes, I knew I had to get my own copy. There is also so much information about the history of Palestine and Palestinian cooking. We had a hard time deciding which recipes to make because there were so many great ones we wanted to share. I am mostly vegetarian but occasionally eat fish. This cookbook contains several excellent fish dishes and a recipe for a “fish spice” blend that also works well with tofu.
Jim says: As a long-time vegetarian with a love of trying new cuisines, this cookbook has been a fantastic resource. Muhammara (roasted red pepper dip), one of the recipes we will prepare in this class is one of my current favorites. It has also been a big hit at potlucks. We put together this menu based on some of our own preferences and we hope it will be a tasty initial foray into a delightful cuisine.
