Feasts of Resistance - West Africa & Cape Verde

  • Peterson Garden Project Community Cooking School 5917 North Broadway Street 2nd floor Chicago, IL 60660 (map)

Discover how food shapes culture and how conflict shapes food. In this hands-on cooking class, we’ll explore how iconic dishes from cultures around the world—from Burma to Ethiopia, Syria to Haiti—were created or affected by social or political unrest.

DESTINATION: West Africa & Cape Verde

Hands-on, BYOB. At the end of class, we’ll share the meal we’ve created at our community table.

Your ticket directly supports Peterson Garden Project’s summer refugee programs, including cooking classes with teen refugee girls in partnership with GirlForward.
