Injera 101 - Make Your Own Ethiopian Bread!
Tue, Mar 13 from 6pm - 8:30pm
Alganesh Michael has been selling out her Ethiopian classes and pop-up events at RCK. The number one request from guests is the desire to learn how to make the unique, spongy, sourdough flatbread, Injera. Injera is a staple in Eritrea (Alganesh's homecountry) and in Ethiopia. In this class, Alganesh will explain the process of making the bread, mixing the dough and making the starter and participants will have the opportunity to bake the injera themselves. At the end of class, everyone will sit down to an Ethiopian feast complete with the Injera they have baked, salad, 2 veggie sauces, and one meat sauce. You will also have a chance to experience the culture as we eat together in the traditional way, using our hands.
