Join us for a magical afternoon as MasterChef Contestant Huda Al-Sultan shares with us her recipe for a Middle Eastern classic, Katayef!

Let us transport you to the magical Middle East as Season 11 MasterChef Contestant Huda Al-Sultan shares her family recipe for this classic Arabian dessert, Katayef! With Huda being born and raised in Saudi Arabia, you will have the unique opportunity to learn this dish from an expert, appreciating the joy of Middle Eastern cooking and culture!

Also known as Qatayef or قطايف, these pockets of heaven are thinly stuffed Arabic pancakes, stuffed with delicious fillings, fried or baked and drizzled with a simple sweet syrup. In this culturally enlightening and hands-on class, our experienced Chef Instructor will take you through a detailed demonstration before you will be guided step-by-step in how to master the perfect Katayef. You will be learning how to make three types of fillings, including a Date and Ricotta Cheese filling, an Almond filling and a Walnut filling. The nut filled Katayef is also plant based! You will also learn how to make a delicious rosewater syrup which is a classic accompaniment to many Middle Eastern desserts.
