To celebrate Ramadan, the good folk at the Commune are hosting a series of Iftar feasts. The series of feasts is being called Middle Eats (hat tip to the delicious pun) and indeed traverses the Middle East, with feasts from Syria, Iraq, Iran (Persia) and Egypt all featured in the lineup. The events are open to all, whether you observe Ramadan or not, and are a great way to show support by feasting heartily.

The menu is shaping up to be decadent. For the Syrian feast, think Mukloubi with lamb, fried cauliflower, and pistachio ice cream, thanks to Almond Bar. The Iraqi feast by Parliament on King will feature eggplant and pomegranate molasses salad, Iraqi yellow spice-rubbed chicken and a sweet cheese roll. The Persian feast (also by Parliament on King) consists of lamb stew with vegetables, chicken in pomegranate and walnut sauce, and Sholeh zard (a Saffron rice pudding). On Friday, Koshariisrner is cooking up an Egyptian feast of okra stew with lamb, fava bean dip, and semolina cake.

And if that doesn't make your stomach grumble, we don't know what will.

MIDDLE EATS DATES:

June 19 — Syrian Feast with Almond Bar
June 20 — Iraqi Feast with Parliament on King
June 21 — Persian Feast with Parliament on King
