Fancy whipping up a salmon tartare with a green pea cold soup, followed by an asparagus and truffle pecorino risotto?This May, chefs of every stripe can attend cooking classes hosted by Nazira Catering, at its private residence in Ain Saade. The cooking courses kicked off last Tuesday, when 10 aspiring chefs arrived for Italian cuisine night. Nazira, the woman rather than the company, began offering cooking lessons back in the 1980s. Since then Nazira, the company, has continued to offer instruction for those interested in learning about different cuisines and techniques. May's lessons are taking place every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday until the 29th, with each day offering a two-hour class on a particular theme.While Tuesday and Thursday's classes are more for observation, Friday's are hands on for the students, to give them direct experience with certain techniques.Let's say, for instance, how to cut an onion, how to make a broth, how to deal with a fish, how to buy it before and then how to cut it, the several techniques of cooking it," Chef Cynthia explains.Of her students, the chef says that there aren't any beginners or more advanced students. On the menu to be tackled this month is how to contemporize Lebanese cuisine, with the third Tuesday class taking on foul mdammas.
