Our February Foodie Group Aubergine workshop is now fully booked.
We love aubergines – they’re delicious fried, baked, stewed and roasted! This squeaky skinned ingredient can be made into a remarkable array of textures and can be combined with so many foods to create mouth-watering flavour combinations.
For our February Foodie Group cooking workshop we will be exploring the history of how aubergines (sometimes called eggplants) are used in Sephardic and Middle Eastern Jewish cooking.
We’ll be cooking two aubergine-based dishes:
First is the popular dish ‘Baba Ghanoush’ which you may recognise from your local takeaway. This popular savoury dip literally translates as ‘spoilt father’ for it being such a delicious treat. However did you know that when aubergines were first introduced in Persia people thought they were poisonous, unhealthy and even caused madness! Now however this dish is enjoyed across the Middle East and the world with different twists using a variety of spices and flavours.
