The Mosaic of Flavor cooking series is a collaboration between City Market and USCRI Vermont (US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants Vermont, formerly the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program). In January, we will be preparing the Iraqi specialty Kubba. Kubba is made by filling potato balls with minced meat and herbs and frying until the outside is crispy. Kubba takes a special skill to make well and is a signature dish of good cooks in Iraq. Our instructor Ahlam Al Attar is originally from Bagdad and moved with her husband and daughter to Burlington in February 2015. Ahlam is a chemical engineer and enjoys discussing the parallels between chemistry and cooking. Ahlam learned her love of cooking from her mother and enjoys cooking for large family events and teaching people about Iraqi food.
This livestream event will be held on the Microsoft Teams platform, and instructions for downloading the platform and a link to the event will be sent out to participants in advance.
