African Culinary Traditions with Pierre Thiam

Restaurateur, chef, advocate, and cookbook author Pierre Thiam is ready to take you on a culinary journey into the West African kitchen at the Museum of Food and Drink Lab on Thursday, March 30, from 6:30pm to 8:00pm.

Raised in Dakar, Senegal, a bustling and culturally diverse metropolis on the west coast of Africa, Pierre has a deep interest in how foods are produced, who produces them, and the cultural meanings of the foods we eat. Currently, he is working with a women’s cooperative in South Senegal to revive fonio, Africa’s oldest cultivated grain, and bring this heritage ingredient to a wider audience.

At this cooking demonstration and talk, you’ll get a special preview of this project and a taste of Pierre’s boundless passion for the rich culinary history of Africa and its Diaspora. A reception featuring wine and beer from The Brooklyn Brewery will follow.

Doors open at 6 pm. Program begins promptly at 6:30.
