From Baghdad to Tehran
25 September 2015
The Near-East cuisine is not as famous as its close cuisine from the Middle-East. There are many similarities, as well as differences.
Various dishes such as the Kubaneh (Yemenite Brioche-like bread), Baharat spice mixture, different types of steaming pilafs and the Kibbeh (Iraqi style meat-filled dumplings) are but a small sampling from this rich and exciting cuisine.
Here you can see photos from this great workshop:
1. Persian style Pilaf with carrots, red onions and spice mixture.
2. A known symbol of the Persian/Iranian cuisine - the pomegranate. Extremely healthy but also very messy (great tip to peel it - under water).
3. Chef Jan enjoys his Kubaneh - a Brioche-like pastry from the Yemenite cuisine.
