Israeli Cooking Class at Dan Gourmet with Taste of Israel Food Tour in Tel Aviv

In the kitchen we learned how to make Lahmabiajin (Lahmacun), Tahini and charred eggplant with garlic and lemon.

Some of the ingredients we used were flour, olive oil, parsley, lamb, tahini, onion, citric acid, garlic and lemon juice.

The head chef in the kitchen was an excellent instructor: skilled, passionate and patient.

Although we’re not good cooks we enjoyed learning how to make many of these dishes common throughout The Middle East, the Mediterranean and Northern Africa.

Video Script:

So today we are at Dan Gourmet here in Tel Aviv. We are going to be taking a cooking class and it is starting.
We add some sugar and this is the mixing method. Everything goes together.

I’ve got my apron on and I’m ready to cook.
So what are you doing now? I’ve been put in charge of flipping eggplants.
Background music playing.
Sizzling sound.

Sizzling noises.

So we’re trying some tahini now. And apparently we’re going to be using that for the meat. It’s really tangy. Delicious. What’s it made of? Sesame seed paste.
Background music playing.
Some nice tahini. This is our version of pizza.
Background music playing.
You’re struggling Sam. What’s happening right now. I’m the worst cook in the kitchen. You need some flour.
Background music playing.
Here I’ve got Lahmacun. Hopefully I pronounced it properly. It’s got lamb and tahini. Oh, it’s going to be good. It’s like Israeli pizza. Hahaha. Delicious.
Lahmacun. This one is a little toasted. We forgot it in the oven. So, extra crispy. Mmmmm. That’s really good. Can you taste the tahini? You can really taste the lamb. That’s my favorite part. The lamb meat. Mmmmmm.
Background music playing.
So we have our charred eggplant with tahini ready to be devoured.
So it’s picnic time. What are you carrying? This is just for me. Just kidding. What is everyone else eating? What is everyone else having?
So here is the fruit of our labors. We’ve got a nice little picnic feast. Let’s check that out. Oooh!
And a beautiful patio setting.
Background music playing.
So that concludes our cooking class at Dan Gourmet. We’ve been here for two and a half hours just cooking and eating and trying everything we’ve made so we are stuffed and hopefully we’ll get to try some of these recipes eventually once we have a kitchen of our own.
