Dinner Series: A Persian Experience

November 8, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - November 9, 2019 @ 8:30 pm

November 8 and 9 at The Caterers in Hopkins

Spend an evening discovering the Persian culture through a curated dinner by Chef Ali Teymouri from The Caterers, and Minnesota’s award-winning food discovery platform Eat.Drink.Dish!

This new dinner series was created for the avid food enthusiast who wants to go beyond just eating out. They also want to learn about the story and cultural anecdotes behind it all.

In collaboration with CultureTastes, this dinner series will allow you to experience true Persian-style dining complete with interactive educational activities like Persian calligraphy or learning common phrases in Persian (Farsi) like ‘Noosh-eh-Jaan’ (“may it nourish your soul”)!

This is a 3-month dinner series, starting in October, with 2 seating options each month.

For the month of November (Part 2) , we will be offering the following menu served family-style:


House-made Persian eggplant dip mixed with onions, garlic and topped with yogurt

SHIRAZI SALAD (V) Freshly chopped onions, tomatoes, and cucumbers tossed in a house-made lime vinaigrette

Main Course

A mix of bone-in Joojeh (chicken) Kabob marinated with saffron, and Koubideh (ground beef) Kabob served with aromatic Basmati white rice

Light, moist cake filled with vanilla whipped cream and topped with strawberries and chocolate shavings

2 Cocktails TBA

Seating is very limited and will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Free Parking

About Chef Ali Teymouri

Chef Ali’s love of cooking began at an early age and has since transformed into a dynamic, lifelong process of creating and loving food. Years ago as a child in his mother’s kitchen, Ali started his culinary adventures by helping his mother cook traditional Persian dishes. It was then that he first learned how rewarding it is to create quality dishes with fresh ingredients. He eventually desired to transition from not only cooking food at home, but to also become an active participant in the food service industry.
