Afsari was born in the town of Rajshahi in Bangladesh, where she grew up watching her mother cook. In Bangladesh, Afsari worked as a merchandiser in the garment industry. She later moved to Singapore with her husband and young son and started practicing her mother’s recipes by preparing them as after-school snacks for her son’s school. They moved to the U.S. in 2000 and settled in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, and both Afsari and her husband continue to work in the garment business in Manhattan. Afsari also caters parties and large events and teaches classes at ROC-NY, a non-profit culinary organization.
Pleasant way to while away an afternoon but not a cooking lesson by any means more a demo.
Overpriced!!! You have to pay over $100 dollars to take this class and you have to wash your own dishes?? Ridiculous! Plus, you can’t even bring any wine. It’s not worth the money.
Brandon Z. gave this class 5 out of 5 CourseHorse stars.
