Maqluba (Upside Down Lamb & Rice)


Saturday 5th September 2020

10am – 12pm CST 

Learn to make one of the Middle East’s most beloved dishes! Maqluba means ‘upside down’ since it is a one pot dish that when done is flipped over on a big plate.

Out of all of the many recipes I make, I love Maqluba the most for its simplicity and flavor. Maqluba is traditional Syrian, Iraqi, Palestinian, and Jordanian dish. The dish consists of meat, rice, and fried vegetables placed in a pot. This dish is flipped upside down when served in reference to its name which translates to “upside-down”.

Includes a FREE copy of my cookbook: Introduction to Middle Eastern Cooking
