Sudanese Cookery Class with Negla | BRISTOL
Chef Negla will teach delicious, authentic Sudanese dishes followed by a sit-down meal.
About this Event

This class is suitable for vegetarians!

Negla from Sudan will guide you through how to prepare her menu from scratch while sharing stories, secrets and inspiration about traditional Sudanese food and culture.

Sudanese cuisine reflects a history of cross-cultural influences including Middle Eastern and North African. Negla’s recipes showcase some of Sudan’s favourite flavours such as ground okra (an unusual but delicious way of cooking with this vegetable!) and Beberre chilli, bringing an earthy and rich taste to sauces and stews. In this class, you’ll also learn to make Gurassa, a Sudanese pancake that often accompanies savoury dishes in a similar way to fermented breads eaten in neighbouring East African countries.

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 Sudan to your own table.

Your class will be held at in Bristol.

A message from our Chef Negla:

"Hello I am Negla from Sudan. My grandmother taught me to cook (my mother died when I was 15 years old) when I got married age 19 - she explained to me it’s very important to be able to cook for your husband. But even then I didn't take much interest in cooking becuase my auntie and sisters always did the cooking at home. Then 10 years ago me and my family were forced to leave Sudan becuase of the war and we arrived to the UK as refugees. We didn’t have my sisters around anymore so I had to start cooking for my family. It was the first time I had properly cooked for my husband. I have 3 daughters and one son. They liked my cooking a lot. I started to try lots of different dishes and then I realised I was an amazing cook."

Sudanese cuisine consists of a generous share of stews and gravies—often eaten by hand—fresh and cooked salads, dips, lime, peanut, rice dishes, sweet and savoury pastries, unique breads, and decadent desserts. In line with other Muslim-majority countries, lamb and chicken are the preferred meats."
