  • $79 for a three-course cooking class with wine and a take-home spice mix for two (a $220 value)
  • $149 for a three-course cooking class with wine and a take-home spice mix for four (a $440 value)<p>

Students learn how to make a three-course West African meal consisting of peri peri-marinated jumbo shrimp served with avocado sauce; sautéed spinach with your choice of fried plantains, fufu, or steamed rice; and gâteau flan with lemon curd and orange marmalade. Each guest goes home with a preblended spice mix—which can be altered to accommodate those who are vegetarian or allergic to shellfish—to reproduce the sautéed spinach for their own dinner table. The first class is scheduled for 8/21/12.<p>

Bolat African Cuisine

Chefs at Bolat immerse diners in West African culture via savory stews and tropical ingredients served at a slick black-and-red café. A mild dough known as fufu accompanies most dishes to balance spiciness and scoop up morsels of wisdom hidden under ingredients such as tilapia, plantain, or goat. Provided in place of silverware, rounds of fufu are meant to be pulled apart and remolded into small discs that can, like chopsticks or dining pliers, pinch bites of food and deliver them to the mouth’s main opening. Bolat’s table minders provide diners with sudsy bowls of water to rinse fingers between plates, elevating the authenticity of the West African dining experience.

Customer Reviews

The makeral bean cake you have to try and the beertails were delicious as well. The fufu goat dish I wouldn't recommend. Very nice ambience and staff.
