Many of the dishes in Lebanese are similar to our Indian food so it’s a cuisine which will be enjoyed by the whole family young and older members.
All the recipes are vegetarian and have been tried and tested to make them perfect in taste and looks. I have selected most of the well known dishes and nowadays most of the ingredients are readily available.
This is a semi hands on class. I will be covering a variety of vegetarian Lebanese dishes which will include dips, starters, main course and the famous dessert baklava. I will also teach you how to make your own Phyllo sheets.
