Teacher: Damira

What you'll learn in this international cooking class:

Damira hails from Samarkand, the crossroads of East and West, and a city whose inhabitants are known for their warm and generous hospitality.

You’ll appreciate this reputation as soon as Damira welcomes you into her home with a hot cup of green tea and an assortment of homemade traditional snacks, which could include pastries filled with meat and vegetables, freshly baked cinnamon or lemon cakes, and dried fruit from Uzbekistan. 

For Damira, food, family and culture are inseparable. She fell in love with cooking as a child on her grandmother’s farm, helping to prepare meals for her large family (including 33 grandchildren!). Damira’s love of history and storytelling will shine as she teaches you to use traditional Uzbek cooking tools and explains the origins of her rustic, flavorful dishes. A retired cardiologist, Damira will also share the health benefits of the fresh herbs, vegetables and spices that color her cooking. An occasional numerologist and tarot card enthusiast, Damira might even tell your fortune. 

You’ll leave Damira’s home inspired to share her stories and cook her food, which we’ll make easy with a packet of recipes and a shopping guide to her favorite markets.  

In the Taste of Workshop  (Vegetarian), the menu will be: 

Mashhurda (Mung Bean and Vegetable Soup) 
  • A comforting, home-style soup made with carrots, onions, mung beans, baldo rice, dried apricots, and freshly chopped dill and cilantro, topped with a dollop of thick yogurt 
Pumpkin Sambusa (Baked Savory Pies)
  • Flaky triangular pies filled with cumin-scented butternut squash and onion, brushed with egg yolk, and sprinkled with sesame seeds  
Radish Salad 
  • A refreshing cold salad of thinly sliced radishes mixed with yogurt, garlic, and freshly chopped dill and cilantro
Please Note:
  • Food Allergies: This menu includes dairy, eggs, tree nuts, and wheat.  
  • All "taste of" workshops include a welcome-snack and beverage, 1.5 hours of hands-on cooking instruction, a small meal, and a booklet of recipes and in-depth culinary info.
