Lalibela Cooking Class

Summary

I am Asnka and from the Amhara region of Ethiopia but i love to cook dishes from around the country, so prepare to be served pan-Ethiopian cuisine. At the beginning, I learned to cook helping my mother around the house as a child and later studied at Lalibela Vocational College. Now, I ran my own kitchen after married my husband Kanu, who has a BA degree in Economics and is a tourism professional - he's led trips around Ethiopia for over a decade! Your cooking class will take place in my home kitchen at the centre of Lalibela city Kedemt Village. Just 2 minutes walk from the churches of Lalibela. During your 1.5 - 2 hour class, I will show you how to make a traditional Ethiopian dish as well as how to pour and cook the perfect injera, a traditional fermented bread people in Ethiopia use as an edible plate with other dishes served on top of it. You will definitely learn to make shiro (chickpea or broad bean stew) or tibs (stir-fried meat with vegetables and spices) in addition to injera. You will also learn to roast coffee beans.
