Amanda Fisher Demo: A Virtual Mediterranean Vegetarian Feast

Join us for a virtual demo* that will have you falling for the art and joy of Middle Eastern flavors.

In this virtual demo, Amanda takes your taste buds on a trip to the Mediterranean as she shows you how to make five delicious recipes. She’ll begin by baking up homemade pita bread, and then, two spreads to swipe the warm, fresh pita through—a roasted red pepper dip and an impossibly creamy hummus that’s sure to ruin you for the store-bought variety forevermore. For the main course, Amanda will make maqluba, which means “upside-down” in Arabic, and is a layered dish of rice, cauliflower, and potatoes, cooked in a pot and then flipped onto a dish to serve. She’ll round out the meal with malabi, a milk pudding, for dessert, with toasted coconut and blueberry compote. All of the recipes are vegetarian (in fact, most are naturally vegan), but she also provides an option to add chicken to the main dish, making these recipes very adaptable to dietary restrictions and preferences.

This demo will be recorded and sent out after class; feel free to sit back and relax and enjoy the show!

Amanda Fisher, owner of Shuk (a fresh market pop-up) and of Amanda’s Kitchen Catering and Kitchen Coordinator at Beth Israel Congregation, shares fresh, original, and creative recipes inspired by the Mediterranean. She’s cooked all around the U.S. and Israel, from San Francisco to Jerusalem, and those travels inspire the colorful dishes she creates.

* Please note that this is not a virtual hands-on class but a demonstration held over Zoom—this means that you’ll be watching as the guest chef prepares dishes. Unlike our hands-on classes, this is not an interactive experience, and thus, we do not encourage attempting to bake or cook along with the program. Recipes will be sent in an email with your class confirmation.*
