In this class, we'll learn how to make a batch of "Persian Mulberry Confection" -- a delightful sweet called "tut" in Farsi, which literally translates to 'mulberry' -- a staple confection offered at weddings, celebrations, and other festive gatherings.
This sweet bite-sized Persian nibble is made with ground almonds, sugar, cardamom and rosewater, mixed into a dough, and formed in the shape of a mulberry -- thus, its name. It even gets a little pistachio stem. Very cute!
The ingredients are few and the end result is a festive, visually appealing and decidedly toothsome treat.
Don't miss out on the chance to pick up a dazzling and delicious culinary skill.
