Scoop, wrap and roll. Learn to cook authentic, Ethiopian food with this exceptional cooking experience.
WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT?
It is a distinct possibility that you have never eaten Ethiopian food. In fact, it may be one of London’s best kept secrets, which seems extraordinary, especially given our love for a spice.
Ethiopians think of food as a community project. Eating with friends and family is part of their heritage. Nothing could be nicer than gathering round a tray of fresh injera, to share a dinner of stews, grains and vegetables - forget cutlery, this is hands on kind of eating - which is where the injera comes in useful.
Injera is a sour fermented flatbread - slightly on the spongy side, and used as a plate base. It is made from a super grain, and is very useful for scooping up deliciousness. Nothing to wash up, just tear off, wrap and roll.
