Geographically, Afghanistan is situated in central Asia – bordered by Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan to the north, Iran to the west and Pakistan to the south and east.  For hundreds of years, Afghanistan was where all the important trade routes between India, China, the Middle East and Europe converged.  Hence it’s no wonder that Afghan cuisine reflects Middle Eastern and South Asian influences.  As travel to many areas of Afghanistan remains unsafe for visitors due to high threat from terrorism, we are grateful to have the chance to cook its foods at a “Cook-and-Lunch” session.

When:  Thursday, April 6th, starting at 9.30am till about 1.00pm thereabouts

Where:  Amna’s home in Ludwigshafen (address will be provided to those attending)

What:  Amna started cooking Afghan foods because it is the less spicy version of Pakistani food.  We will learn to make “Kabuli Pilao”, widely considered to be the national dish of Afghanistan.  Also on the menu is “Chapli Kabab” – some of you who attended our Chinese New Year Potluck Party would have tasted this Pashtun-style minced beef patties.  For dessert, we will be making “Cream Rolls”, a buttery, savory and sweet pastry sold in every Afghan bakery.

This session is full, the waiting list is now open.
