About this Event

Nothing beats a home-cooked meal shared with family! And this is what inspires our Family Style Cookery Classes, a fun, laid-back homestyle cooking experience. Here, you will learn to prepare different dishes and then enjoy them with people who, like you, fuel our mission of supporting refugee and migrant chefs on their journey to integration. It’s a cookery class with a conscience, like they say!

Your class will be led by our wonderful Chef Fatima from Iran at the in Clerkenwell, London.

At our Family Style Cookery Classes, you will be grouped with other participants and prepare dishes together as a team. Think of Chef Fatima as the head of the family! She will take care of dividing the class into groups, and each group will be responsible for creating one of the dishes. Of course, you are welcome and encouraged to move around during the class to learn about the other dishes being prepared. Throughout the evening, Chef Fatima will share stories about their food and culture, and explain how to prepare each of the dishes so you come away with some new cooking tricks and inspiration from Iran. You will also be emailed the recipes after the class.

A message from our Chef Fatima:

“My name is Fatima and I am from Iran. I came to England in 2022 with my husband and my six year old twin boys. We left everything behind in Tehran to come here.

In Iran, I studied food science at university and worked for a medical company and then became a nail technician.

I didn’t start seriously cooking until I got married. It was then that I fell in love with cooking. I love experimenting with food. My favourite ingredient is saffron - I use it in lots of dishes - rice, ice cream, cake, sweets and even tea!

I love the diversity of Iranian food - every city has its own local dishes. In the north, we grow a lot of rice, so you’ll find this on every menu. In the south, seafood and spices feature. Meat and chicken are popular everywhere.

By sharing these dishes, I hope to recreate fond memories I have of Iranian food and culture. Iranian people are very hospitable. I’m happy to welcome you to my class, to give you a taste of the country and people.”
