The Event

Woin Tegegn has travelled throughout her native Ethiopia to experience the flavours and traditions and its regional cooking practices. She describes her food as ‘plant-based paradise’ and we think you’ll agree, it’s pretty special.

The character of Ethiopian food is captivating and distinct, bringing together essences of earthy, spicy, sour and tart flavours with brilliantly aromatic spices which has made it very popular. The communal sharing and serving of food with friends and loved ones will be explored, using the famous injera (a fermented flatbread), which when torn with the hand acts as a delicious spoon to scoop each heavenly bite.

Are you enchanted by Ethiopian Cuisine and dream about creating the colourful plates full of flavour and wonder at home? In this class you will be infused with storytelling of the evocative recipes, many passed down through Woin’s family and then developed to fit a modern, plant-based lifestyle. Each plate is crafted to ensure health and nutrition whilst retaining the nostalgic traditions of Ethiopian fare.

Breaking bread brings people together and creates a sense of belonging. Through sharing ancestral skills, techniques and the cultural richness of eating together, Woin supports community and healthy living through sharing her food and the richness of her travels. This translates into an Ethiopian carousel of dishes that you’ll find yourself cooking again at home with ease and pride.

“I'll show you how to make delicious plant-based versions of authentic Ethiopian dishes with love, inspired by recipes handed down through generations." Woin Tegegn, Ethiopic Kitchen vegan caterers.
