Slow Food Sunday at Bastyr: Palestinian Food and Mason Bees Talk

lentil_soupOur friends on the east side have a tasty and informative event coming up this Sunday. Check out the details below.

The next Slow Food Sunday in Kirkland will be held on Sunday, 13-Apr. Home cook and Palestine native Hiba Reshig will team with her mother Samira to present a soup-to-nuts program that includes several regional specialties. We’ll have a traditional Shawrbat’adas lentil soup, a game hen dish seasoned with dried sumac petals served on a flatbread with caramelized onions, a rice dish known as Mujadar that will be the main for our vegetarian guests and side for all others, a Palestinian “simple salad”, and homemade starter desserts that you’ll need to read more about at http://www.slowfoodsunday.org. Our talks will include a presentation by Hiba and Samira on Palestinian food traditions and we’ll also have a special presentation by Stephanie Corchnoy on the fascinating role of Mason bees to support food production in our region.
