The films explore ingredients and narratives surrounding West African food and the journeys they made from the coast of West Africa to those of numerous Caribbean islands, Latin America, Europe, the American South and around the world.
The events will be a combination of demo, discussion, film screenings and to tie things together, tastings focused on celebrating the ingredients.
If you’d like to attend the event, here’s a link for more information and tickets. There will also be opportunities to connect online.
I’ll share more when I get back. Till then, here’s a bit about:
