Briarpatch Co-op Cooking Classes: WEST AFRICAN FESTIVAL

with Louise Jones

The origins of American soul food lie in West Africa, yet many of the plants it uses grow in the southern U.S. Interestingly, West Africans now use many ingredients from the Americas! In class, though, we will experience traditional ingredients new to most people, such as baobab, jaggery, and tiger nut. We’ll do this as we prepare a Ground Nut Stew with Millet, West African Cucumber Salad, Baobab Plantain Pies, a ginger soft drink, and Tiger Nut Milk.
