Ethiopian Cooking Workshop
Taught by Jonathan Soma
Soma was born in the South, is what someone from the North would say. He co-founded the Brainery, is the sciencey half of Masters of Social Gastronomy, has more hobbies than can dance on the head of a pin, and loves Waffle House about eighteen times more than you.

Long-simmering stews and fresh vegetable dishes, spiced clarified butter, a colorful plate with an (almost) complete rainbow - Ethiopian food is amazing, period. Let's spend a few hours whipping together an Ethiopian feast that you'll be prepared to recreate at home.
Dishes will include:
Nitr qibe, an addictive spiced butter
Ayib Be Gomen, a vegetarian dish of collards and cottage cheese
Mesir Wot, a spicy lentil stew
Yebeg Alicha, a mild lamb (or chicken) dish
Atkilt Wot, a tasty mix of cabbage, carrots and potatoes
and most importantly of all, injera, a spongy bread that serves as both plate and utensil!
After you finish this class you'll be equipped with the confidence to tackle all Ethoipian recipes and the spices hiding inside.
Vegetarians are welcome if they're willing to skip one dish! (Although it isn't vegan friendly or gluten-free, we do discuss how to adapt the dishes in that direction)
