All ages!
All Online cooking classes include interactive cooking instruction, a virtual dinner party, a packet with the instructor's family recipes, and a video recording of the class. Since the price is per device, feel free to invite your partner, kids, or roommates to join!

Since Damira 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 Damira will guide you through making two of her family recipes: butternut squash sambusas (flaky triangular pastries made from scratch and filled with cumin-scented butternut squash and onion), and a refreshing salad of radishes and fresh herbs tossed with a tangy yogurt dressing.

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.

Shopping List for This Class

2 large eggs
Table salt
All purpose flour (at least 2 cups)
1 butternut squash (raw, whole & unpeeled)

I loved my first experience with League of Kitchens and cannot wait to tell everyone I know. I really enjoyed the small class and how personal Damira was--she really opened herself up, speaking about Uzbek culture, offering her own childhood stories growing up in Uzbekistan. I love that the focus is not just about food-- what makes this special is the human connection; I loved learning more about Damira, her family, and life in Uzbekistan.
