The Art & Science of World Cuisine

Through Sunday, April 30
Eastway Regional Recreation Center
Presented by The Naija Goddess

The Art & Science of World Cuisine is a plant-based culinary class that healthily takes a trip around the world learning the tastes of different world regions and the science behind creating the dishes. As a Nigerian-American, there will be an emphasis on West African cuisine as well as Caribbean and Southeast Asian cuisines. Each class is 2-hours where 40-minutes is spent informing food origin/history, food science and nutritional benefits; 1 hour of food preparation; and 20 minutes of eating the food while taking Q&A. As an example, a very popular dish in my country is jollof rice. The lecture portion of the class explains what the dish is, about its country of origin, the flavors that uniquely make this dish West African, the nutritional benefits of eating this dish and the food science behind the specific food preparation. Then, we transition to preparing the dish keeping in mind what was just discussed. I specifically show the science of food preparation and discuss how I have tweaked the dish to be nutritionally balanced and plant-based. I also provide tips on how to easily replicate this at home which is supported by the recipe handouts given to attendees. Once the dishes are complete, the attendees can taste the recipe and ask me questions.
