Injera is not only a source of substance, but a vehicle for delivering Ethiopian meats and vegetable stews to your mouth — a delicious utensil of sorts. We are thrilled to invite Genet Gabeye, originally from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, to explain the history of the most important component of any Ethiopian meal.
In this workshop, Genet will walk you through the process of making the bread, mixing the dough and creating the starter. You’ll learn about teff, the millet-like grain native to Ethiopia and cultivated for thousands of years to produce injera. You’ll enjoy a traditional plate of injera and accompaniments. And you’ll get a taste of Ethiopian culture as we eat together in the traditional way, using our hands.
Genet will demonstrate and share recipes that you can easily make, with a beautiful set of recipe cards for you to take home.
