In this hands-on cooking class, Chef Pooja will teach you how to fill a centerpiece-worthy Middle Eastern mezze platter from start to finish. This selection of dips and spreads bursting with bold herbs and spices is ideal for sharing at parties or gatherings. The chef will show you how to achieve a smooth, creamy hummus and balance the rich flavors of a hearty muhammara. Prepare a rich labneh dip and bright, herbed tabouli to round out your platter along with crisp, baked pita chips to serve with your array of dips and spreads.
