Class Description


What you'll learn in this international cooking class:

We are obsessed with the flavors of Persian cooking, which teems with an abundance of fresh herbs, sour and sweet ingredients, and fragrances that make you heady (saffron, rose petals!).

Join us as we explore some of the ingredients and cooking techniques that make the dishes of Iran, with their brilliant hues and seasonings, so marvelous to cook and eat.

  • Kuku Sabzi (baked eggy dish with a million herbs)
  • Chicken Fesenjan (a rich walnut + pomegranate stew) 
  • Steamed Rice with a Golden Tahdig (crispy crust)
  • Salad-e Shirazi (vibrant chopped salad) 

School Notes:

PLEASE NOTE: If you are registered for a “VIRTUAL” class, you can disregard the information below.


You’ll receive a complete recipe packet and enjoy a full sit-down meal at the end of class with your classmates. Our classes are BYOB, and you are welcome to bring a bottle to enjoy at the sit-down meal (not including our baking or dessert classes).

Our classes are hands-on, coupled with demonstration-style teaching. Everyone is situated at their own cutting board/chef’s knife station around a large wooden work table that accommodates the whole class (10 people max). We work together as a group, with the chef at the head of the table.

We focus on knife skills, preparing ingredients for cooking, and we strive to find every opportunity to offer you a hands-on experience at the stove and at your station, all within the spatial parameters of a single stove/family-style kitchen. We ask for volunteers to assist in all cooking.

Refund Policy

For Public Classes:

We have a firm business days cancellation policy (for credit only) to ensure that we have enough time to re-fill your seat with another student.

Please note: Boot Camps require business days notice to be rescheduled.

While it is not in our nature to say no, we are simply not able to accommodate last-minute illnesses or work-related conflicts. However, you are always welcome to send someone in your place, because we understand that these things do happen.

Classes are not refundable.

For Culinary Boot Camps:

Because of the volume of Boot Camps we offer, we cannot offer make-up classes to everyone who misses a class, as it happens too often. As a consolation we have two options for making up missed classes, provided you alert us ahead of time.

  • Send a friend in your place (and make them cook you a meal based on their new skills, as repayment!), or
  • Opt for our “Plan B” program: You can register for any single class that covers the same/similar coursework you missed, provided it still has an open seat 48 hours before it runs. That way you can take another class and we are just filling empty seats. Please note, this is a last-minute, drop-in option, not something that can be scheduled more than 2 days in advance. This does require that you keep tabs on our schedule to see what is available (the number of open seats is part of every class listing).

In any event where a customer wants to cancel their enrollment and is eligible for a full refund, a 5% processing fee will be deducted from the refund amount.

Thank you for understanding!

    It was Super fun! Jenifer was very knowledgeable about Persian cuisine and helped the class understand every ingredient and its purpose step by step. The dishes chosen, were very herb-y and delicious. Highly recommend, especially since it is hard to find actual authentic Persian food in NYC
