Dear Friends of Immigrant Kitchens: Join me Friday, May 13, for a cooking lesson and dinner at the Freeport Community Center. We'll be making lamb meatball soup, ghee-scented rice, and stewed beef with sour golden plums and chestnuts. I cannot believe how easy it is to make the homemade noodles for the soup with Zemfira's family method. You don't need any mixers or fancy attachments! Just a bowl, flour, egg, water, a rolling pin and a knife. It's incredible!!! I can't wait to share. My kids' eyes were bugging out of their heads how cool this method is!
