“Hello, I’m Sereh from Gambia. I was brought up in a town called Boo Noknok Manok. My mother wasn’t around when I was growing up so my great grandmother taught me to cook when I was very young. In Gambia all young girls learn how to sweep, boil the rice, wash your cloths and look after yourself from a very young age. My mother tongue is Mandinka. I arrived 11 years ago to Bristol. I have a strong community here. I’m still waiting to get my status from the Home Office so I can start working. I really love cooking. I would like to be a professional chef one day. I love dancing and learning new things. I wanted to join Migrateful because I love cooking so much and I’m excited to teach others about my food”
This is a family style cookery class where the group collectively prepares several dishes. The chef will divide the class into groups with each one responsible for creating 1 or 2 of the dishes. Each participant is free to move from one recipe to the next throughout the evening so that everyone can get a sense for all of the dishes.
Thanks so much to Coexist Community Kitchen for hosting us!
