Baklava Making Class
What: How does Chef Wissam Zayat of Manakeesh Café Bakery whip up his addictive baklava? Come to his Skillshare class to learn the secrets of creating this favorite (and don’t think you’ll be going home without a doggie bag either). This flaky and honeyed dessert can be intimidating to novice and semi-pro bakers alike, but Chef Zayat will teach you the ins and outs of perfect homemade baklava in under two hours. Manakeesh is in the business of delicious dining, and through this Skillshare class, beginners can learn how to make the baklava that keeps people coming back to Manakeesh. Come to our class at Manakeesh with clothes you don’t mind wearing while baking, and prepare to take home about six pieces of baklava—Manakeesh has all the ingredients already on hand. Enroll here!
