This is GA's first cookery class with our club and her last - unfortunately. And she tried to teach us a maximum number of dishes meaning that the whole morning was spent cooking and the early part of the afternoon spent eating. It is always interesting watching another cook in action, learning each time something new and interesting. And Oriental cuisine is not only delicious and rich in texture, but also such a feast for the eye.

Filling for Ouzi Bundles
Lebanese Rice with Vermicelli
Fatteh with Kafta
The kitchen was filled with the most lovely aromas when I arrived. We were to learn how to make a few Lebanese and Persian dishes. Most of them were meat and rice-based this morning, with generous use of nuts like pistacchios, almonds and pine nuts, tomato sauce, garlic, onions, lemon juice and yoghurt among other ingredients.

This was also our last cookery lesson until the new school year begins and we have 2 members who have yet to present their cuisines. Keep an eye on this space come Autumn.
