Persian food is becoming more and more popular in London but still something most of us don’t really know much about.
To find out more, and have an excellent night of eating, The Modern Pantry in Clerkenwell is hosting the event Passage to Persia. It’s a series of workshops held by some of London’s top chefs to teach people about the joys of Persian cooking.
There are two dinners left to choose from where the chefs will select lesser-known Persian ingredients alongside British produce and each will cook a four-course menu for 30 guests.
The ethos of these evenings is to educate people about Persian cooking but also to inspire them to go home and create something on their own.
On Monday 5 November Omar Allibhoy, the 28-year old owner of Tapas Revolution in Westfield and Bluewater who trained with three-Michelin starred chef Ferran Adria of El Bulli, will be heading up the kitchen.
You can also sample the excellent cooking of Tim Anderson on the 12 November, winner of Masterchef in 2011.
The dinners are £65 per person and you can book a place by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
