Description
 
Middle Eastern cuisine is beloved for its use of a spectrum of spices, lending big, bold flavors that transport you to the aromatic spice markets of Marrakech, Istanbul and beyond. A working knowledge of spices can take your cooking to a new level. Enter: Samar Lazzari of Stoa Takeaway, now in operation and open to the public in South Philly’s Bok Building. Join Samar for a TGIF lunch demo that covers just SOME of her go-to spices – Aleppo pepper, black lime, cardamon, cinnamon, coriander, cumin, mahlep, nigella seeds, saffron and sumac. Enjoy a three-course lunch of spring legume balila with warm cumin-garlic vinaigrette and Aleppo-Za’atar crackers; Old Damascus beef kebob with Kabsa spiced rice (garnished with fried almonds and raisins) and mint-laban and spring salata mafrouma (mint yogurt sauce and spring chopped salad); and kenafe Nabulsieh, a dessert of shredded phyllo dough filled with a mahlep infused brined cheese, topped with chopped pistachio and drizzled with an orange blossom syrup. And just in case you have to head back to the office, we’ll top it all off with a reinvigorating Turkish coffee with cardamom. People of the world, spice up your life!
