Join Hanif Sadr, Caspian chef and founder of Komaaj, a Persian food and culture start-up, as he shares his recent work with farmers in and around his grandfather's 19th century farmhouse, nestled deep in the lush mountains of Gilan, Iran. Learn about a uniquely bio-diverse region and the farmers' efforts to maintain their family farms in a UNSESCO-recognized region wrestling with modernity and sustainability. Explore the healing taste, color, aroma and benefits of each tea variety as home-made Gilani confectionery melt in your mouth. This presentation will include unique hand-dried teas and Caspian confectionary found nowhere else, including quince and orange blossom tea and wild borage tea from the Mazandaran province as well as sweet and savory dishes like sugar-free pastry with orange syrup, pistachio and roses.
