From the organizers:
With the holiday season in full swing, Rachana and Jeanette from The League of Kitchens will expand your dessert horizons by introducing you to sweet treats from their home countries, Nepal and Lebanon, respectively.
Rachana, from Nepal, will be frying up some Sel (fried rice flour donuts) and Jeanette, from Lebanon, will show you how she shapes her Maamoul (semolina shortbread cookies stuffed with nuts). Afterwards, they will be interviewed about their experiences as immigrants to New York City, how they’ve adapted and improvised their cooking, and what these special dishes mean to their cultures. Join us for these insightful demos, tastings, and information about the holidays and food customs from each country!
