Learn to make Koofteh Pesteh and Khaiar-Annan: pistachio and pomegranate meatballs and cucumber and pomegranate salad.
Leila especially created this menu to celebrate the Persian Winter Festival. The Winter Festival (Shab-E-Yalda) takes place on and around the Winter Solstice (Dec 21st). It is an example of the integration of natures rhythms of change and the lifestyle of Iranians. On the eve of Shab-E-Yalda Family and friends would gather and sit all night around the korsi, and eat a variety of fruit and vegetables. Now in many homes the Shab-E-Yalda is celebrated with elaborate banquets, poetry and stories. Join Leila and IMK Founder Paula on Dec 20th, for a virtual taste of Shab-E-Yalda.
This is a festive and delicious dish, the kooftehs (meatballs) are served with a honey and pomegranate dipping sauce.
