Choose Between Two Options

During each Moroccan cooking class, chef Anass Sentissi leads students in the creation of one appetizer and one entree, providing them with a copy of each recipe to take home. Chef Sentissi also imparts info on Moroccan culture, cuisine, and spices amid live Moroccan music and tastings of eight of the country's wines. Classes take place on Sundays from 10 a.m.–2 p.m., with all materials included.

Saffron Cafe

Intricate tiles in alternating colors stretch up the walls of Saffron Cafe’s cozy space, as imported Moroccan chandeliers hang from the ceiling and slender vases on each table hold fresh flowers. Amid this authentic atmosphere, head chef Anass Sentissi crafts equally genuine Moroccan cuisine that has earned praise from such publications as NUVO. Entrees such as slow-roasted and spiced leg of lamb steam beside sides of saffron rice, and plates of fluffy couscous cohabit with veggies alongside one of several wines imported from Morocco. Tagines, rich aromatic stews of chicken, lamb, or beef, arrive in glazed earthenware pots that protect their innards and keep food steamy with ornately painted conical lids. The menu also has many options for vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free diets, as well as items that are hormone-free and halal.

A native of Morocco, Chef Sentissi also shares his knowledge of Moroccan cuisine by leading regular cooking classes that include a background on Moroccan history, an in-depth look at spices, and a tasting of various Moroccan wines. Each class rests on Chef Sentissi's combination of dietary knowledge and ancient and modern nutritional science. All recipes are packed with vitamins, nutrients, and anti-oxidants, plus anti-inflammatory ingredients, such as garlic and saffron.
