SU - Pakistani Cooking & Cultural Conversation with Kausar Ahmed

When: Sat., April 24, 2-4 p.m.
Where: via Zoom

Fill your kitchen with the aromas of Karachi as we cook a Pakistani meal together.

Our two-hour journey, led by Chef Instructor Kausar Ahmed, will feature three dishes and keep you cooking for the duration of the class. As we cook, your party host, Shelby Reynolds, will facilitate a casual interview so we can learn more about Kausar's love of food, her childhood home of Karachi and her work with local refugee and immigrant communities.

Class attendees will be provided an ingredient list in advance, along with some short food prep steps. Also in advance of the class, you will be invited to pick up a signed copy of Kausar's cookbook "The Karachi Kitchen" and the spices needed for our time together. (Contact-free pick-up will be set up on Shelby's covered porch.)

We will be cooking Kulcha Bread (a traditional flatbread), Raita (a yogurt sauce) and Dum Kay Pasanday (a slow simmered beef tenderloin). A vegetarian substitution will be suggested as well.

You will finish the class with a meal for your family's dinner simmering on the stove and stories to reflect on as you dine!
