  • 448 20th St NE - You will learn how to make grilled meat and kebab-type preparation for meats. This type of grilling was depicted in Byzantine Greek icons and described in Homer’s Odyssey. It has some history! And I’ll teach you about it- through preparation, grilling.. We will both prepare and eat an amazing meal together!

What we’ll grill: The only true method for grilling authentic kebabs is over fire, so we’ll start with how to prepare and manage an open charcoal grill the natural way (no lighter fluid). These methods can be replicated, but best to learn the process with someone whose specialty is in open fire grilling.

I will show you how to grill kebabs + chicken wings perfectly. I will explain what type of meat goes on various skewers, the process of marinating and how to keep the meat tender.

I’ll give a tutorial on spices and side dishes of tzatziki (yogurt, cucumber and mint), Antep ezme (spicy Kurdish salsa), and onion salad with sumac and isot. We will eat what we prepared end with tea and baklava for dessert.

I will show you Kurdish hospitality and we’ll have an unforgettable experience together.
