A Persian Thanksgiving of the Fall Harvest
Instructor: Mitra Mohandessi

For almost 6000 years, the Festival of Mehregan has been a time for praising Mehr, the god of love, light, kindness, and peace. It also marked the last harvest of the season and was a tribute to nature. Imagine a table set with wild marjoram, flowers, delicious foods, sweets, and fruits of the season! Join Mitra as she shares the food of her native country and the fun traditions of this special celebration. Sharbat is a sweet cold drink of rosewater and basil seed, the drink of choice for toasting. She’ll also demonstrate how to make Kookoo seeb-zamini, potato pancakes filled with herbs, spices, ground meat and currants, Reshteh polo, fragrant basmati rice and toasted noodles topped with sautéed raisins, dates, saffron and chicken, and for dessert, Sohan Asali, an amazing brittle of almonds, honey, saffron and pistachios.
