About the Event

Join us for a Ghapama virtual cooking class! Learn how to make the legendary Armenian holiday dish Ghapama and share stories about traditions. 

The Zoom link will be sent upon registration.

Since this is a virtual class, materials will not be included - you must buy your own.

If you are in LA, you can try the demonstration Ghapama from this class at the GALAS Friendsgiving dinner on this same day. For those who are tuning into the class from different cities, we encourage you to invite some friends over and share your ghapama with them. That way, our entire community can celebrate together.

Please note that you can use any size pumpkin for this including small pie pumpkins, which are easily available in stores in November. If you want a big pumpkin and can't find on in stores, ask around for pumpkins from your friends and neighbors, as people tend to hang on to their Halloween pumpkins. I do this almost every year and I always get one.

Since this dish is flexible based on your preferences, you can get any of the suggested combination of ingredients from each category.

- A pumpkin (can be a large jack-o-lantern pumpkin or a small pie pumpkin, depending on how many people will eat it)

- Jasmine rice (around 2-3 cups for small pumpkins, or up to 2 pounds for large pumpkins)

- Dried fruits of your choice (the most popular options are apricots, plums, apple, pears, raisins, cranberries, cherries)

- Nuts of your choice (the most popular options are almonds, walnuts, and pecans)

- 1 cup of Honey

- 1 cup of Brown sugar

- 1 stick of Butter

- 2 tablespoons of salt

Cooking materials -

- 1 pot for cooking rice

- 1 baking tray for cooking pumpkin

- Fancy serving tray

- Your choice of garnishes (such as floral leaves, tiny apples, persimmons, uncooked cranberries and anything else that will look cute)
