$49 for an Authentic West African Cooking Class ($150 Value)
During three-hour hands-on cooking classes, African music weaves through the background as groups learn to prepare three authentic West African recipes with help from instructors native to Nigeria and Ghana. Students will enjoy their meals and can take home any leftovers at the end of class. Examples of dishes taught include red-red with ripe plantains and black-eyed peas, joloff rice, egusi soup, vegetable stew, and peanut-butter soup with chicken. The class schedule varies, but classes are typically held on Tuesday evenings at 5:30 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday afternoons at 3:30 p.m.
Delight of Africa
Ghanaian cuisine leans heavily on a sauce combining peppers, onions, ginger, oil, tomatoes, and shrimp. The pepper and ginger slice through the gentle acidity of tomatoes and the sweetness of shrimp, complementing both meat and vegetable dishes. The cooks behind Delight of Africa started out making batches as a favor to friends and family. Today, they still follow a recipe for the sauce handed down from their grandparents, using only fresh ingredients and never adding preservatives or food coloring. They also hold cooking lessons, teaching groups to re-create traditional West African recipes and broaden their horizons without the dangers of touching a spinning globe.
