More Info

Atem from Nigeria will guide you through how to prepare her menu from scratch while sharing stories, secrets and inspiration about traditional Nigerian food and culture.

With over 250 ethnic groups and 500 languages, Nigeria is known for its culturally diverse cuisine. The star of the show in Atem’s class is Jollof Rice, considered by many to be Nigeria’s national dish. Atem will show you how to lovingly prepare this dish in order to achieve the perfect depth of umami flavour accompanied by her other recipes using some of the most distinctive flavours of West Africa such as scotch bonnets, plantain, coconut, ginger and tomato.

You’ll cook in groups with your fellow class participants before sitting down together with your chef to enjoy a delicious meal together. After the class, you’ll be emailed the recipes you learned how to prepare, so you can bring a taste of Nigeria to your own table.
