Learn to make traditional Gambian dishes bursting with flavour, then sit down and enjoy what you’ve made as you share a social dinner with the group. 

Lots of fun, and the perfect way to learn a new cuisine!

Message from Awa: My name is Awa. I’m from Gambia. My journey with food started with my mum who taught me everything she knows about a food. It is a big tradition in my culture to follow our family legacy. We start cooking when we are very young. Our dishes are very flavoured and tasty. For example Benecin and Chicken Yassa. We have a lot of fish and seafood dishes. When I am cooking I feel very happy.

Thank you to Mercato Metropolitano for so kindly hosting us.
