UPCOMING CULINARY TOUR IN SENEGAL
From January 30 to February 10 2017, join Chef Pierre Thiam and the West African Research Association for an unforgettable culinary journey in Senegal, West Africa. This will be a hands-on experience--we'll be learning to prepare a number of signature West African dishes such as Ndole, Egussi, Yassa,and Thieboudienne, as well as gaining a new understanding of this part of the world. So mark your calendars for the first ten days of February 2017 and plan to come relax, enjoy the sunshine, and learn more about this important world region through its cuisine.
