The Silk Road was the great spice route of the ancient world stretching from the deserts and plateaus of Western China and Tibet to the busy ports of Turkey, Greece and Venice, Italy. In three workshops we will explore the interplay of the wonderful spices and cuisines of diﬀerent regions. The date of the classes and the foods we will explore are:
- March 3: The foods of the Eastern Mediterranean — Greece, Turkey, Persia, Northern Syria
- April 7: India, Nepal and Afghanistan
- May 5: Burma, Tibet and Western China
In each class we will prepare 8-10 dishes (appetizers, soup, main dishes, bread and desert — those who have taken these classes know that it can be done in an afternoon). The workshops are limited to 20 cooks and each cook can invite a guest to share in the prepared meal at the end of the day. The cost for each workshop is $60. The workshops will take place at the Caspar Community Center and go from 1:30 until we ﬁnish clean up around 7:30. More details will be provided when you register. The purpose of these workshops are threefold: to learn about the culture of diﬀerent regions thru their food; to create community by the fun of cooking together in a group; and then extend community by sharing food together with friends and family.
