Elie Assaf joins us from Wellington institution - Phoenician Falafel, to share in his family secrets.
There is a tradition in the Assaf household - every Sunday they meet up for a traditional family feast of Lebanese food. Well, on Sunday 13 September, come down to the City Market and become one of the family.
With a mixture of demonstration and hands on, Elie will take you through some quintessential Lebanese dishes including Phoenician Falafel's famous falafel and ultra smooth hummus.
Eat & Greet is a foodie website bringing you the people behind your favourite plates in the Capital. Letting chefs tell their stories, finding out what influences them and getting a sneak-peek into their little foodie black book.
When & Where
The City Market is excited to partner with world pioneers of innovative kitchen technology, Gaggenau.
The City Market is home to a stunning Gaggenau kitchen in which we will be offering intimate cooking classes with Wellington’s best chefs and food personalities. Hosted by Eat & Greet's Beth Brash, classes will take place in the City Market where you will be surrounded by bustle, bounty, and aromas every second Sunday.
With classes like dumpling making with City Market's own House of Dumplings, Lebanese cooking with Phoenician Falafel, Knife skills and butchery; not one class will be the same.
Classes will be small, so book early. Guests will have the opportunity to listen, learn, ask questions, and most importantly, taste. After 90mins of more reality than you can shake a whisk at, we’ll send you on your way with your belly full and a recipe card so that you can recreate it all again at home. You will be well satiated and bursting with ideas.
Eat and Greet presents Gaggenau at the City Market – the perfect way to spend a Sunday morning!
