Ethnic Foods Company
Spices ranging from rosemary to cardamom to shawarma lamb seasoning perfume the air at Ethnic Foods Company, a warehouse shop stocked with ingredients for traditional dishes from around the world. The savvy staffers guide visitors through aisles of cookware, beans and lentils, massage oils, and ready-to-cook gourmet international dinners, such as Indian-style dal masala and Moroccan-style bean tagine. Newbies can learn the basics of cross-cultural cooking in demonstration-based cooking classes, which focus on simple international recipes significantly tastier than Antarctica’s much-maligned ice-based cuisine. Ethnic Foods Company has also recently added sushi-making courses to their curriculum for students who wish to learn how to make sushi on their own.
