Mouth-watering Middle Eastern dessert you can cook at home
In Season 11, MasterChef Australia contestant Huda Al-Sultan was loved for her passion for Middle-Eastern cooking. Now, Huda is the next culinary expert to appear in one of Drool's virtual cooking experiences this month.
Learn how to create vegan-friendly Katayef this month!
On Saturday, October 17, Huda will reveal how you can make the classic Middle Eastern dessert called Katayef. If you have a sweet tooth, a love of Arabic flavours and a need for a new vegan-friendly dessert recipe, then this virtual cooking class is for you.
Also known as Qatayef, these light and tasty pancake pockets are stuffed with delicious fillings including date and ricotta, almond or walnut. During her virtual class, Huda will walk you through how to make these three fillings and show you how to bake or fry them. Plus, Huda will expertly guide you through the process of preparing her scented rosewater syrup; the perfect accompaniment to this dish. Huda's walnut version of Katayef is vegan-friendly.
There will be plenty of time to interact with Huda during the class, and you will receive your ingredients list and method plus Zoom details by email in advance. Bookings can be made online via the Drool website and the cost is $20 per person. All you'll need on the day is access to Zoom, comfy kitchen attire and your ingredients at the ready. Or, you can sit back and watch the experience unfold. The experience runs for one and a half hours from 4.00 pm. Spaces are limited so it's best to book early.
