We have learned that the cuisine of the Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East feels rich and full of flavor because of the artful use of spices and herbs. Understanding spices as a food and how to cook with them can help transform something ordinary into something extraordinary!

Wine often showcases aromas of herbs and spices and can similarly add a special element to a dish when it’s treated like an ingredient.

Oleana's Wine director, Theresa Paopao will go over the basics of wine tasting and demonstrate how the herb and spice characteristics of wine can compliment a dish.

Oleana's Executive chef Ana Sortun will discuss blending, storing and sourcing spices and share a few blends that she can’t live without.

Recipes include:
Scallops, Lentils & Persian Lime
Green Garlic Cigar Borek
Chicken Thighs, Tahini, Dried Fruit & Pistachio
Za'atar Bread

Instructors: Ana Sortun, Executive Chef/Owner, Oleana & Sofra
Theresa Paopao, Wine Director
