The instructor and contents of the class were delightful. The room/kitchen used was not comfortable due to lack of heat. We huddled around the stove top and burners as much for warmth as for the cooking experience.

Actually, hadn't heard of Delight of Africa before the Groupon offer. The teacher was kind, knowledgeable and supportive. The class was definitely hands-on and we were encouraged to ask questions and participate in the cooking activities.

I learned a lot about Ghanaian cooking. Vida is a very cheerful and good teacher. I enjoyed the meal we made and plan to make a dish or two at home soon!

We were unsure exactly where to go for class. Class held in a weird donut shop that had greasy slippery floors. Class was involved only to chop vegetables. We watched with her back to us. Eventually people just milled around talking to each other. Can't say that I learned much about Ghana or it's food. At the end the instructor handed out flyers to pass out to our friends so they could take classes from her for $50 - we had paid $69. She was a nice person, but didn't really engage or involve the students. The location seemed odd and not very clean.

From Our Editors

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.
