Virtual Cooking Classes


Virtual Cooking Class: Afghan Borani Banjan - Vegetarian
Chef Farida
When: Sunday December 4, 2022, from 5-6:30pm MST - NOTE THE TIME CHANGE FROM ORIGINAL TIME

Join our wonderful Chef Farida (and her son Sohil as translator) to learn how to make an Afghan favorite: borani banjan, a gorgeous eggplant dish. She made it for a recent UWE@home meal and it received rave reviews and requests for a cooking class to teach the public how to make it. At the end of the class, you'll have a delicious vegetarian meal to eat for dinner!

United We Eat@home has been a popular program in Missoula, every week selling out of 150 meals in less than an hour. Customers LOVE the food produced by the chefs, and have expressed interest in learning how to make the food themselves. During COVID, this demand has grown, and classes have been very popular with the community. 

Cooking classes have become great ways to spotlight different cultures in our community, from refugees who also cook for UWE@home, to immigrants who are eager to share their culinary home culture with their new community.


Classes are held on Zoom, and filmed in the First United Methodist Church kitchen where we cook every week. Classes are designed to last between 1.5 - 2 hours, and the goal is for you to cook at home alongside the chef and UWE Kitchen Manager so you'll have a delicious meal to eat at the conclusion of the class. We record all classes and will send you the link to the recording so you can try the recipe again later.


We try to offer a vegetarian version of the dish if possible. After purchasing a ticket to the class, you'll be sent an ingredients list a week prior to the class so you'll have time to purchase ingredients. A Zoom link will be sent 1-2 days prior to the class so it doesn't get buried in your inbox.
