Bowery Culinary Center Presents Afro-Brazilian Cooking

Event Navigation

Brazil owes much of its rich cultural heritage to Africa, and nowhere is Africa’s presence more pronounced than in Brazil’s cuisine. In addition to introducing new foods such as palm oil, okra, and a variety of chili peppers, Africans also shared innovative cooking techniques, like using dried fish or shrimp to season dishes. Transport yourself to the land of samba through bold and delicious flavors, and join Chef Madea Allen-Gueye for an evening of authentic Afro-Brazilian cuisine.

On the Menu: Moqueca (Bahian Fish Stew); Arroz à Brasileira (Brazilian-Style Rice); Couve à Mineira (Sautéed Collard Greens); Dendê Farofa (Toasted Manioc Meal).

Hands-on and Demonstration.  Reserve your spot here.
