Upcoming Classes & Events:
as part of NYC WINE & FOOD
Festival we will be teaching:
The Art of Couscous Making
Saturday, October 18, 5PM-6:30PM
Part of why we founded NYSHUK was to keep our culinary traditions alive and give the opportunity to experience those lost artistry rituals we talk about it. In order for that to happen, we teach and create one of a kind events.
Our goal is to collaborate with like-minded people in creating gatherings that are unique, creative and put an emphasis of the beauty of Middle Eastern cooking while enjoying the urban splendor of our favorite city, NYC, as the background.
We are looking for dreamers. Folks who are not afraid of creating, exploring and passing on knowledge and passion with everyone.
If YOU are that person, lets work together.
The Art of Couscous-
In this class we will give an in-depth look at what exactly is The Art of Couscous, and what it means to ‘hand roll’ your couscous. How to make it from scratch? What is the best technique to make it? What equipment is needed in order to get the best result? We will teach and taste the differences between Moroccan & Tunisian couscous and between sweet & savory couscous.
A traditional Moroccan Friday dinner-
An insight to our own family’s Friday night dinner. We will show you how to make hand rolled couscous, tanzeya, a special dried fruit and nut stew served with slow roasted lamb, and various salads to accompany dinner.
A whole world of salads-
In North African & Middle Eastern cooking, you start your meal, by eating an array of different salads with fresh bread. You will learn the different techniques and ingredient needed to create such rich and flavorful salads.
