Falafel was once almost exclusively the preserve of the late night punter looking for a veggie alternative in a kebab shop. In recent years, authentic versions, heaped with nutty tahini sauce and punchy salads, have increasingly charmed British punters. Hot and crunchy on the outside, fluffy and herby within, it's no wonder so many countries want to claim the falafel as their own.

Chickpea or broad beans, coriander or parsley, chillies or sweet spice – We'll cover all this and send you away with the confidence to make them from scratch at home. It's really quite simple.

Your guide on this masterclass will be self taught chef and founder of Arabica, James Walters, who started the business making falafel wraps from a small stall in Borough market over 15 years ago. 

The format:

We'll kick things off at The Cookhouse which overlooks the buzzing Market, where you will learn Arabica secrets to making the perfect falafel wrap from scratch featuring some of Arabica's larder essentials  like Tahini, roasted cumin, wild sumac, pickled turnips. 

The day concludes with us enjoying the falafel wraps you’ve cooked, then we'll wander over to Arabica Bar & kitchen for some baklava pastries washed down with a cold beer, a delicious homemade Lebanese lemonade or a glass of wine.
