What to Expect
We will go to cozy apartment in the suburban area of Baku. Please be ready to climb up to the 7th floor by walk, as there is no elevator in the building. Before the tour starts we will go to grocery shopping and then head out to chef Leman's house. Before we get to cooking, we will prepare the dough for the dessert, let it rest in the fridge and START cooking! Depending on your preferences, we will have two menu options - either meat or vegetarian dolma as an entrée meal. Then we will start preparing salads and “kompot” drink. After we take dough out of the fridge, we will start baking it. While it’s baking, we will start our dinner.
