Persian Sweets Workshop

A unique and enjoyable baking experience which brings the sweets of the exotic East to New Zealand.


We’ll teach you how to bake two popular Persian sweets and give you the chance to try eight more different kinds in this 2.5 hour workshop.

While you’re enjoying the sweets, we’ll share their history and culture with you over a beautiful cup of saffron tea. You’ll also take away a complimentary Persian-style tin in which to put your left-overs. Everything provided.

By the end of the workshop, you’ll be able to:
• Differentiate between different Persian sweets
• List the main ingredients of most sweets and their origin
• Make/follow the recipe for two of the most popular sweets
• Recognise what the ten most famous Persian sweets taste like!
