Fariba Fekri is a self-taught cook who enjoys learning new recipes and draws inspiration from her Middle Eastern background. Fariba was born and brought up in Urmia, in the north west of Iran, and has called Edinburgh her home for over twenty years. She has worked in education for over ten years, creating nutritious food for young children, and caters for gatherings large and small. She enjoys creating flavourful and colourful dishes for her guests that are moreish and nourishing for the body and soul.

Typical Iranian main dishes are combinations of rice with meat, vegetables, and nuts. Herbs and fruits, such as plums, pomegranates, quince, prunes, apricots, and raisins, are often used. Saffron, dried limes and other sources of sour flavouring, cinnamon, turmeric, and parsley are characteristic flavours. Middle Eastern food has been growing in popularity around the world, particularly over the past five years. It was not long ago that, even in big cities like London, if you wanted to sprinkle sumac over a salad, add a dash of pomegranate molasses to a dressing or soak fruit in rose water, sourcing these ingredients meant a trip to a specialist store. Thankfully, it has become easier to enjoy these wonderful flavours and make them a part of your kitchen cupboard staples.

Fariba will be demonstrating a three-course typical Iranian menu during a cookery class, where attendees will be able to ask questions and enjoy a buffet. All attendees will receive a booklet of recipes and ingredients.
