Sabayad is similar to the Indian paratha and chapati. It is a versatile flatbread that can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner, just by itself or with a drizzle of honey with a cup of tea or coffee. You can use it as a wrap for barbequed meat, vegetables or eggs. The choice is yours!

In this class we will teach you how to make it the way ayeeyo (grandmother) made it. According to ayeeyo, you would know a good cook by the flakiness of their sabayad. Join us to learn the secrets of ayeeyo’s delicious sabayad.

    I thoroughly enjoyed Shukri’s lesson, and have made sabayad on my own, very easily, since the lesson. Shukri is a natural teacher and I liked listening to the stories she shared about making sabayad in her childhood. Very glad I attended the class as I now have a very useful recipe in my kit. Thanks Shukri!

  2. Amy Tanner

    This was a lovely class to attend and learn. I loved hearing Shukri and Abderazzaq’s stories about their families and culture. Making the Sabayad was explained and demonstrated to us all, and I enjoyed making it. I learned a few styles of shaping the bread too. It was a recipe that I would make again. Thank you!

    More than just a cooking class! Shukri’s warm nature shone through during this class and I loved the stories she interwove about her childhood, culture and ayeeyo. Shukri showed a variety of rolling methods to let us choose which we liked best and I ended up with lovely, flakey sabayad which were quickly devoured by the family. So much fun! Thanks Shukri!

  4. Paula Taylor

    What a fantastic session! I had always wondered how this delicious type of bread was made and with Shukri and Abdi’s clear instruction, now I know. And it was great having the bonus of learning about the influences on East African cuisine. Thank you for a fun and interesting session, Abdi and Shukri!

    Engaging and authentic class filled with honest food. Good with an interesting history and culture.
    Both Abde and Shukri were warm and explained the whole cooking process and the story about sabayad with gusto. Lots of laughs also were shared amongst the group. An amazing cooking experience.
