A Middle Eastern Table: Falafel, Baba Ganouj and Mezze by CAMAJE

  • Camaje 85 Macdougal Street New York, NY, 10012 United States (map)

No need to bring anything but your hunger for good food and your thirst for knowledge!

Maram Shadeed, a Syrian chef, touted by the likes of New York Magazine as making some of the best falafel in the city, will show us her secrets. In additional to falafel, we'll also make Tahini sauce, Baba Ganouj, Cabbage Salad, and serve them with toasted pita and pickled vegetables. We'll finish off the meal with Syrian Rice Pudding. We will sip on Arak while we cook (we'll also have beer and wine for those of you who are not so into the Arak!)

There is a firm one-week cancellation policy for all classes; i.e. no refunds will be issued for no-shows and last minute cancellations. Most of our hands-on classes are limited to 6 - 8 students unless otherwise noted. Wine tastings are limited to 12.

Private Classes from 1-20 people also available. Private classes start at $275, and $75 each additional person and you choose the time (usually 3-4 hours) and the cuisine/menu. Even invite friends to come and enjoy fruits of your labor in our "One Night Stand" program!

Cooking class parties and corporate teambuilding events also available.

Call 212-673-8184 with any questions or to book your private event.

Camaje Cooking Classes are unique. They are intimate (there is room for only 6 students per class) and are taught in a working restaurant kitchen by a professional chef. Class starts in the Camaje dining room, where you meet your chef/teacher and your classmates to discuss the menu and how to prepare it. Then you don aprons and, under the chef’s watchful eye and with her help, if needed, you prepare your ingredients. Prep finished, it's time to move to the kitchen to cook. (Remember: You are in a working restaurant kitchen—if there’s a rush, stand back! Students tell us they find this exciting and instructive.) When you all have finished cooking, it’s time to gather around your table in the dining room for wine and tasty food cooked by you. Relax with the chef and chat with your classmates. Bon apetit!
