Spice Journeys: Ethiopia **Event Postponed**
**EVENT POSTPONED**  We will be rescheduling for later in the fall.  So sorry for the complications, your understanding is greatly appreciated!

Join Slow Food East Bay for the next installment of our Spice Journey series...  This time with an exploration of Ethiopia!

On Sunday, August 4th from 2 to 5pm, we'll gather at Brundo Ethiopian Culinary Studio in West Oakland, where founder and author Fetlework Tefferi and cooking instructor Lea will lead us through the history and development of Ethiopian cuisine and the spices used to make it unique.  We'll taste berbere and learn how it differs from the spice mixtures of other countries, hear the secrets behind clarified butter and the importance of it as a flavoring agent, and much more. After a demo of a variety of cooking styles and recipes, they'll be offering up samples that showcase the flavors of Ethiopia.

In addition, we have the honor of hearing directly from Fetlework as she gives a reading from her new book "Ethiopian Pepper & Spice" (a copy of which is included in the price of the class) and answers questions about Ethiopia and the cuisine.  

Total cost is $60, $5 of which goes to Slow Food East Bay and the work we do in the local sustainable food community.

So come out for an afternoon of education and inspiration -- walk away with ideas, a book, and a palate tingling with new flavors!
