[12:00 pm BST] Learn the secrets of Gambian cooking in Sereh’s new online cookery class!

We are so excited for Sereh’s new online class! She is a wonderful teacher, story-teller, and Bristol-based chef. She will share the secrets to traditional Gambian dishes. This is your chance to learn a brand new cuisine, support an amazing cause, and eat great food!

The class will be conducted as an interactive virtual cook-along. All participants will be sent an Eventbrite confirmation email with a list of ingredients and quantities needed for the recipe, the equipment needed for the class, and a Zoom meeting link. If you do not receive the confirmation email please check your spam folder. If you are still missing information about the class please email hello@migrateful.org. The classes usually range from 1.5-2 hours long. The chef will then lead the group step by step through the recipes; stopping frequently to answer questions, share anecdotes, and provide feedback on your dishes!

We are running virtual cookery classes during the COVID-19 pandemic, while we are unable to run our regular in-person events, as a way to keep connected and to support our chefs.

A message from Sereh: “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”
