Class Description


What you'll learn in this international cooking class:

Learn Mab's secrets to making aloo morgh-e beround-e Parvin joonam (a rich and fragrant chicken dish) paired with kateh polo zafran ba tahdig sibzamini (saffron spiced rice with a potato crisp)!

Since Mab can’t physically welcome you into her home, she wants to do so virtually!

Our online classes are designed to be special, meaningful opportunities to share cooking, culture, and connection--just like our real life experiences. We want you to cook along, and we promise there will be plenty of time for questions, conversation, and stories. It will all end with a virtual dinner party where you'll get to share in the fruits of your labor, apart, but together!

In this 2.5 hour interactive online experience Mab will guide you through making two of her family recipes. Mab will show you how to prepare:

  • aloo morgh-e beround-e Parvin joonam
    • a rich and fragrant chicken dish made with onions, prunes, saffron, rosewater, cumin, turmeric, and cinnamon.
  • kateh polo zafran ba tahdig sibzamini
    • perfectly steamed saffron rice with a crispy potato tahdig.
Here’s how it works:

  • After registration you’ll receive an email with the Zoom link, shopping list, equipment list, and recipe packet.
  • At the scheduled time of your class, you’ll click on the Zoom link and join your class live!
  • Afterwards, you will receive a link to a video recording of your class that you can revisit at your leisure.

  • Persian Cooking Online 2 with Mab

    Reviewed by Mary T Z. on 4/18/2021
    Loved the class and the personal story of Mab's. It was also great to have a moderator (Justine) who would type into chat what was happening and with instructions. This way if you missed what was said, you could look at the next step. I have found often with these classes that the written recipe is changed once you are in person and with the noise, even in your own kitchen, you sometimes miss what was said. The food was delicious and everyone in the family enjoyed it. Thanks for offering the virtual classes.
