Join guest chef Anas Atassi, author of the new book “Sumac: Recipes and Stories from Syria,” for a class that will show you three occasions when Syrian food should absolutely make an appearance on your table. First up is muhammara, a fast, flavorful, and beautiful dip of roasted red pepper, walnuts, and pomegranate molasses. A classic mezze dish in Aleppo, muhammara is excellent with crackers, fresh vegetables, or even as a creamy, vibrant accompaniment to roasted meats. Then, we’ll think about the weekend as we make musabaha, a brunch dish that is sort of like a deconstructed, hassle-free variation on hummus. And finally, treat yourself to an afternoon snack inspired by toshka, a beloved Syrian street food. Cheesy, meaty, and crisp, toshka are great on the go, and Anas will give you his thoughts on how to make them the base of a full meal, as well. As we cook, Anas will share stories and reflections of Syria’s rich food culture.
