Chef Obah will teach delicious, authentic Somali dishes followed by a sit-down meal.
About this Event

This class is suitable for vegetarians!

Chef Obah from Somalia will guide you through how to prepare her menu from scratch while sharing stories, secrets and inspiration about traditional Somali food and culture.

Somalia, located on the coast of the Indian Ocean, is considered the gateway between the Horn of Africa and the Middle East. Its key position in the spice trade route is reflected in the fragrant and aromatic spices central to Somali cooking. Obah will share her signature spice blends in her recipes, including seasoned rice and spicy chutney.

You’ll cook in groups with your fellow class participants before sitting down together with your chef to enjoy a delicious meal together. After the class, you’ll be emailed the recipes you learned how to prepare, so you can bring a taste of Somalia to your own table.

Your class will be held at in Bristol.

A message from our Chef Obah:

"Hello, my name is Obah. I am from Somalia but was born and grew up in Kuwait. I never cooked when I was young, as my mum never had time to teach us. I learnt to cook when I got married to my husband 23 years ago, starting with Kabes (Somali chapatti). It didn’t turn out perfect the first time, but I was determined to do it again and from there I just learnt through practicing. I really enjoy learning about new food from different cultures, and mixing them together!."
