African Culinary Traditions with Pierre Thiam

Event Navigation

According to the organizers:

Join chef, restaurateur, advocate, and cookbook author Pierre Thiam for a culinary journey into the West African kitchen. Raised in Dakar, Senegal, a bustling and culturally diverse metropolis on the west coast of Africa, Pierre has a deep interest in how foods are produced, who produces them, and the cultural meanings of the foods we eat. Currently, he is working with a women’s cooperative in South Senegal to revive fonio, Africa’s oldest cultivated grain, and bring this heritage ingredient to a wider audience. At this cooking demonstration and talk, you’ll get a special preview of this project and a taste of Pierre’s boundless passion for the rich culinary history of Africa and its Diaspora. A reception featuring wine and Brooklyn Brewery beer will follow.
