Come spend a cozy evening in our kitchen-classroom and prepare some traditional recipes from Tuscany, Umbria, Abruzzo, and Italy’s northern region.

The Art of Couscous: An Evening with NYShuk

Throughout North Africa and parts of the Middle East, couscous is regarded as the ultimate comfort food. Like rice to Persian cuisine or pasta to Italians, couscous is revered as almost sacred—a food to enjoy every day, and to dress up for special occasions. Today, most people only know the factory-produced, quick-cooking version that comes in boxes with flavor packets. But at its heart, couscous is the opposite of fast food—made by hand and savored accordingly. In tonight’s class, the dedicated team behind NYShuk will show you how to make authentic Middle Eastern Jewish dishes featuring couscous from scratch and their superb artisanal harissa. Come and learn how to hand-roll couscous at home, and taste how generations of love and tradition can deliciously infuse a home-cooked meal.

On the Menu: NYShuk’s Signature Hand-Rolled Couscous; Roasted Lamb & Chickpea Stew with Garlic & Harissa Sauce; Moroccan Carrot Salad with Fresh Herbs & L’ekama; Spicy Tomato & Harissa Salsa.

Instructors: Ron and Leetal Arazi, Chef-Owners, NYShuk
