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 Mab 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 Mab will guide you through making two of her family recipes. First Mab will show you how to prepare aloo morgh-e beround-e Parvin joonam (a rich and fragrant chicken dish made with onions, prunes, saffron, rosewater, cumin, turmeric, and cinnamon). You will also learn how to make kateh polo zafran ba tahdig sibzamini (perfectly steamed saffron rice with a crispy potato tahdig)..

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.

Mab made us feel immediately welcome, from serving us her delicious lentil spinach soup, to sharing details about her childhood and life as a feminist and activist. It was an intimate form of storytelling not many other classes would provide.
