Spice Journeys: Nigeria
Spice Skills from Western Africa
Our Spice Journeys continue on to the western African country of Nigeria... A place where hundreds of ethnic groups contribute to a cuisine ranging from a peanut & chili coated meat dish to bean based moi moi to yams in fufu. Not to mention the fermented cereal ogi. Um, yum??
If this piques your curiosity, join us on Monday, September 9th from 6 to 9pm, in the downstairs kitchen/cafe space of the Finnish Hall on Chestnut Street in Berkeley. For three hours we'll learn how Nigerian beans, maggi seasoning, crayfish, hot African peppers and palm oil come together to create the flavors of this colorful western African country. Kaykay Anadu of ManMustWak, an African market in downtown Oakland, will be talking through the food history and culture in Nigeria and how it has translated into the Caribbean and the US. She'll describe the spicing, and cook up a few dishes, walking us through her process -- and then we'll get tastes, of course!
The price for the evening is $55, which covers the materials for the class, rental of the space, and a $5 donation to Slow Food and the work we do in the East Bay. Tickets can be purchased here. Prefer to pay via check? Not a problem. Please email Willow (firstname.lastname@example.org) for details.
Please note: we have two worktrade opportunities available. We ask that you pay just $15 for the cost of the space rental, and help set up, be sous chef to KayKay and then help clean up as we go. Email Willow (email@example.com) for more information.
Here's to new and exciting flavors on our tongues and in our toolbox!
