Cooking Class: African-Asian Cuisine

In this hands-on cooking class, you'll experience the incredible fusion of African and Asian flavors as you prepare dishes from Suriname. This tiny South American country is home to people of Dutch, African, Indian, Indonesian and Indigenous descent, and their cuisine wonderfully reflects these different cultures. Your meal will begin with a traditional West African peanut soup. Then, you'll explore the Indonesian influences by making a soy and ginger-basted baked chicken served alongside bamie, Indonesian-style egg noodles from the island of Java. Lastly, you'll end your culinary evening by whipping up bojo, a rich cake made with coconut, cassava, sugar and coconut milk.

Chef Peggy brings a refreshing approach on cooking. I loved how simple and fresh her ingredients were. It reminded me that food doesn't have to be complicated to be healthy. The peanut sauce was truly amazing with the right amount of spice. Her space was very inviting and brought a sense of peace of mind along with great aromatics floating through the air.
