Armenian: Modern and Molecular *In-Person* *NEW*

Join us for a dinner comprised of modern and molecular gastronomic interpretations of an ancient cuisine dating back 2,000 years. During this class, we'll create Armenian American culinary artist Linda's original recipes that are based upon her family's generations-old classics. First up on the menu is kahke crunch ejjeh with chèvre -- a crunchy and creamy variation on the traditional Armenian dinner omelette. Next up is molecular gastronomy madzoon ov kufteh, which transforms the kuftehs into whimsical mini-sculptures and the classic yoghurt soup into a chilled foam with mint and chicken broth suspended in "caviar" beads, made using sodium alginate and a calcium chloride bath. We'll end the meal with rum-infused banana baklava with bittersweet chocolate chips, which is a nod to the iconic Armenian classical composer Aram Khachaturian's time spent in Cuba during the late 1950s.
