El Nino’s winter thus far has taken pity on us New Englanders after a record breaking snow drop in 2015. The mildest December in history for this region despite being a clear indicator of global warming and climate change, was pretty sweet for being outdoors. Because it’s not a question about if, but when we get that snow apocalypse, the folks at Nibble have curated a winter cooking class series highlighting the diverse food being cooked around town. Make sure to have that fridge stocked, that pantry filled, and your chef hat brimming with cooking class knowledge of worldly winter comfort food.

This year’s Worldly Winter Comfort Series features chefs from Syria, Haiti, the Philippines, India, and Somalia by way of London. Each class will offer students a hands on experience focused on improving technique and building a repertoire of food knowledge to impress your friends at your next dinner party.

Learn about the regions our cooks come from, what they are best known for, tied together by personal anecdotes from our chefs. At the end of the class, sit down, wash up, relax, and enjoy a full meal with all the fixins’. Take the mundane and chill out of your winter: heat up, have fun, talk food, and talk culture. No passport required.
