Tastes of Culture 2022-23: African Perspecive

February 9, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

It’s time to get cooking!  Let’s celebrate Black History Month by cheffing it up from the comfort of your home! In this session we will be making delicious jollof burritos with Ghanian Chef, Chef Kwame Owusu-Afriyie Nsafoah. Chef Kwame will be making stewed black-eyed peas and krakro (sweet plantain fritters) known as RED RED. He will use this traditional Ghanaian lunch staple and fusion it with jollof rice to make a burrito.  Grab your chef’s apron and join us on zoom for a night of cooking, learning and community.

UTM International Education Centre and Hart House co-present a multi-session journey to explore and expand our understanding of how food informs culture and wellness. Each session will be an interactive conversation, led by a food and culture expert who will share a recipe that is significant to their culture and personal history.

Students, staff and faculty from all U of T campuses are encouraged to join us to explore the many ways food teaches us about culture and how food creates community, while also learning a tasty recipe and skills to help you in the kitchen.

No previous knowledge or experience required.
