Plant-Based African Cooking Class In Brooklyn 3:00 PM


Welcome to my hands-on, plant-friendly cooking class, where we’ll learn to cook delicious African food from North Africa all the way to Mozambique. In this hands-on experience, I’ll teach you how to follow four basic, easy recipes; utilize the spices in your kitchen; and incorporate vegan, plant-based cooking into your regular diet. Let's discover the secrets to healthy, home cooking.

What we'll do

  • Welcome

Attendees will be welcomed with a glass of refreshing African ginger juice.

  • Cut and chop

We’ll divide into small groups and learn how to efficiently cut and chop our vegetables.

  • Cooking together

Once we’re done cutting and prepping, we’ll begin preparing our four featured dishes: cauliflower jollof rice, black eyed peas and okra, eggplant harissa, and grounded melon seeds with spinach. Each group will have the opportunity to cook their dish using hot plates, with my supervision.

  • Spices and vegetables

As we cook, we’ll discuss how to elevate average vegetables into a gourmet meal, and how to cook spices to prepare tastier dishes.

  • Communal meal

After cooking, we will share our communal meal at a dining table, and revisit our experience cooking as a group.

Where we'll meet

We’ll meet in Central Harlem, the hub of African American Renaissance (Harlem Renaissance) and well as the home to many African Immigrants in New York City. From small business to generations of Immigrants, Harlem is a truly special place to learn more about the history of African immigrants in the United States.
