Egypt is famous for its pyramids and storied ancient history—and its amazing food! Join us as gourmet chef and entrepreneur Aida Mady shares her love for and indigenous knowledge of Egypt’s culinary arts. She will discuss the fascinating history of Egyptian cooking and how it was shaped by the convergence of several civilizations, as well as the health benefits of traditional spices. Then, make your very own special dessert under Mady’s tutelage! A book signing with Mady in the museum’s gift store will follow.

This workshop is presented as part of the museum’s series of Workshop Wednesdays. Every first Wednesday of the month, stop by the museum for drop-in classes from trained teachers. Stay for as little or as long as you like to complete your masterpiece. All skill levels and ages welcome; participants under age 16 must be accompanied by an adult. This workshop requires registration and space is limited! Please click here to reserve your spot, and visit here for a full list of upcoming workshops.

Free and open to the public.
