Armenian Brunch and History *NEW*

Spend your Sunday brunch with Linda, our Beirut-born Armenian chef and sugar artist. We'll make traditional omelets (ejjeh), Armenian cucumber yogurt (jujukh), hummus served with pita bread, a popular brunch pastry called kanafeh, and Armenian sugar cookies (khurabeh). We'll end the meal with Armenian coffee, served in sugar shot glasses that you’ll take home. Linda will talk about the fascinating history of the Middle Eastern region including immigration among those countries that has influenced the food and culture. Instructor: Linda Khachadurian

Linda Khachadurian

Beirut-born medical editor and international educational nonprofit founder, Linda Khachadurian, studied sculpting in the clay medium in her youth. A life-long sugar fiend, it occurred to her one day, several years ago, to work in the edible medium. In 2015, she started the online shop, Chipper Confections, which gives five percent of proceeds to Pure Water for the World -- an organization that Linda had met a couple of years earlier while writing an article about safe water in Haiti for ReVista: the Harvard Review of Latin America. Since then, her sugar art and chocolate art has been sold at retailers such as UncommonGoods and displayed everywhere from the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in LA to the Mariott Marquis in NYC to the Sheraton Boston Hotel. Her science and visual arts background allow her to explore how they intersect with culinary arts. She holds degrees from Johns Hopkins and Harvard.
