Syrian Mezze and Dessert Cooking Class

With Sanctuary Kitchen

Join Sanctuary Kitchen for a mezze and dessert cooking class led by Syrian refugee chef Nour. Pick up the ingredients from Sanctuary Kitchen, and then cook along with Nour from home to make Muhammara, a bold and tangy spread with bulgur, red peppers, walnuts and pomegranate, and Qatayif, sweet ricotta filled pancakes with an orange blossom syrup. Learn how to make these authentic Syrian dishes and get to know Nour, her culinary background, and her experience as a new resident of New Haven.



Sanctuary Kitchen, a program of CitySeed, partners with immigrant and refugee chefs to build economic opportunity and authentic connections through food. Our vision is to enhance the culinary skills of refugees and immigrants in a supportive environment that honors story and diverse cultural traditions, fosters community and understanding, offers professional development, and generates economic success in the most delicious way possible.
