Cooking with Mekdes: An Ethiopian Experience
A GREAT SUCCESS!
What a great night we had on Saturday as Mekdes walked us through her healthy and delicious Ethiopian dishes. While the final tally has not been confirmed, it looks like we raised almost $3000.00! While many people chose to sit back and learn as Mekdes blended, tossed and fried these dishes, there were a few who took the challenge to cook along with her. There were a lot of great stories and questions, as Mekdes and special guest, injera maker Sosina, shared their knowledge about spices, injera and how to properly drink tej from its traditional bottle.
We had almost 50 people sign up and almost 40 join the zoom class. We recorded the session, so if you missed out on the original registration, all is not lost. Register to watch the video and receive the spices and recipes and find out why we had so much fun!
