Virtual Cooking Lessons

 

 

Do you like cooking? Do you like learning new things? We are excited to announce a virtual cooking lessons you’ve been waiting for. Ethiopia is a very diverse nation in everything. However, there’s something most Ethiopians have in common and that is Injera. Injera is made from an ancient, very tiny, Ethiopian grain called Teff. In our lessons we will talk about this grain and how to turn it into Injera, a flat bread or sponge bread. Injera is naturally gluten free. Through Zoom virtual meeting, you’ll learn the techniques in making, preserving and serving it. 

Injera is not eaten alone, although it may not taste bad when eaten alone. To make injera very palatable, Ethiopians make/cook/prep something called WOT. You can call it paste, soup, curry, stew...etc. There are many kinds of wot. 
While there are many meat dishes that goes with Injera, we will only focus on the Vegan options in these lessons. Trust us, you'll fall in love with all the dishes.
