A fun, hand-on cooking workshop on Holiday Monday!
In the last two years, Newcomer Kitchen has tapped into the tremendous culinary talent in the newcomer Syrian community to create exciting economic and social opportunities. In that time, many people have expressed interest in learning some of their fabulous recipes. So for this Holiday Monday, Newcomer Kitchen is offering a hands-on workshop delving into kibbeh, one of the most popular traditional Syrian dishes. This class will cover two different styles (there are more than 25!), and we will enjoy eating them together with a fresh and flavourful fattoush salad.
A classic version of one of the the most traditional and famous Syrian dishes. Bulgur wheat, finely ground halal beef and spices are combined and formed into small football-shaped dumplings, stuffed with a spiced mixture of ground beef and toasted pine nuts. They are then fried to give them a dark auburn and crisp exterior.
Kibbeh Bel Sayniyeh (vegetarian)
This version of baked “tray” kibbeh is made from two layers of bulgur and squash dough sandwiching a filling of spinach, walnuts, mushrooms and pomegranate seeds. It is then artfully pre-sliced and decorated with blanched almonds before being baked.
Newcomer Kitchen is a project that invites Syrian newcomer women to cook traditional Syrian dishes in a fun, social setting. Meals are prepared and packaged, and then sold online for pickup or delivery to pay for all the ingredients and provide a source of revenue for the cooks.
