Learn to cook with Scot­tish Life chef and writer Su­mayya Us­mani

The Herald on Sunday - Sunday Herald Life - - Food And Drink -

Raised in Karachi, Pak­istan, Scot­tish Life chef Su­mayya Us­mani grew up in a cul­ture where home-cooked meals shared be­tween friends and fam­ily were at the cen­tre of day-to-day life, bring­ing with it a sense of to­geth­er­ness.

Through her so­cial en­ter­prise Ka­le­yard, Su­mayya will share her pas­sion for Scots pro­duce and sim­ple home cook­ing, some­thing that has been at the heart of the classes she has taught for the last 10 years.

Ka­le­yard’s first re­lease of classes will take place in The Old Barn, Pol­lock Park and will cover a wide range of in­ter­na­tional and Scot­tish cui­sine, with a fo­cus on us­ing lo­cal, sea­sonal in­gre­di­ents.

Each class lasts for 3.5 hours and in­cludes mul­ti­ple dishes that par­tic­i­pants can eas­ily recre­ate in their own kitchens. The classes are priced at £65 with all prof­its go­ing to fund com­mu­nity cook­ery classes for marginalised groups in Glas­gow.

Ka­le­yard kicks off 2019 with a Cook and Dine class on Jan­uary 17. The class will cover five home-cooked Pak­istani dishes which will be taught by Su­mayya.

The full pro­gramme of classes can be found at www.ka­le­yard.org.
