Bold Fork Cookbook Club: SIMPLY WEST AFRICAN by Pierre Thiam

    May 23, 2024 @ 07:00pm

    Join us for the May meeting of the BOLD FORK COOKBOOK CLUB!

    Here’s how it works: everyone will prepare a dish from SIMPLY WEST AFRICAN (a couple of days after you sign up, you’ll have access to a spreadsheet where attendees list their chosen dishes.) Then we’ll gather in the shop and share a feast! We’ll talk through the process of procuring ingredients, challenges and unexpected pleasures of the cooking process and many other things related to SIMPLY WEST AFRICAN.

    If you purchase a copy of the book from us with your ticket, you can come pick it up in the store, or have it shipped for an additional cost.

    Please note: because of the high demand of this event, we will not be able to process refunds.

    This is West African food for every kitchen, a generous, warm welcome to its delicious, irresistible culinary mainstays and rhythms.
