If you’ve ever wondered from where the New Orleans dish jambalaya can trace its roots, you can follow it back to its ancestral homeland and to one of the most popular dishes of West Africa: Jollof Rice. Like jambalaya, or Spanish paella, jollof rice is celebratory food and can be adorned with whatever is local and seasonal. Join Tina Fahnbuleh of Gold Coast Ghal Kitchen as she guides you through the history of West African food while cooking up a feast of jollof rice with chicken, and shrimp and spiced cabbage slaw.
This is a live, hands-on cooking class held in your kitchen via Zoom. Class is meant to be as interactive as it would be at our table, with the instructor teaching you how to prepare each recipe. Each class ticket is for one kitchen, and we welcome group cooking on the same screen. To learn more about how class will go visit our FAQ page.
There are two options for gathering ingredients for this class! You can shop for your own ingredients or we are happy to pre-measure ingredients and assemble them into a 4-serving kit. And if you like to sip wine while you cook, consider adding a lovingly paired bottle with your kit!
To get a jump start on class, you can preview the ingredients and equipment needed by FOLLOWING THIS LINK. One week before class we will send out a detailed shopping list, and a few days before class we will email you a detailed recipe packet and Zoom link. All classes are listed in Pacific Time.
