Tis the Season: A PSC Festive Cook-Along!
We are incredibly excited to invite you to our annual festive season cook-along with talented Palestinian chef Maha Salah, raising money for PSC’s vital campaigning work, co-hosted by Zaytoun CIC.
Maha is a Palestinian chef and food blogger for Middle East Monitor. She is currently living in the UK – her fifth country – and her travels are heavily reflected in her food. She carries a little bit of everywhere with her in her recipes, and is not afraid of merging flavours and cuisines to create innovative yet traditional recipes.
Cooking is the best way to bring people together and share a moment of happiness and joy, especially at this special time of the year when we seek the comfort of our home and loved ones. Whether in the same household, or each cooking from your own home, we believe that preparing a lovely hearty meal together can be a beautiful way to celebrate this season, and we are so excited for you to join us!
Once you have successfully registered for the event, you will receive a digital dining pack in your confirmation email which will include your ingredients list. Please note that this event will include a vegetarian option.
The dish we will be cooking is Mtafayeh/Zahra bi Laban, which is cauliflower and (optional) meat in a yoghurt sauce. The nutty flavour of the fried cauliflower compliments the creaminess of the yoghurt sauce perfectly, and the subtle kick of garlic you get at the end is divine.
Versions of this dish is made in the Levant, including Palestine, Jordan, and Syria. In Palestine, the city of Hebron is known for this dish and they traditionally make it with Jameed, which is a hard, dry yogurt made from sheeps or goats. Some people add tahini to their yogurt sauce, but we will be cooking it with regular yoghurt.
PLEASE NOTE: We advise you to register early so you have a chance to order any necessary ingredients through our shop which may not be available at your local supermarket such as Palestinian olive oil.
