Authentic African Cuisine

Gabi Odebode, co-owner of AfroMeals, wants to share the culture of her home.  There is no better way to get to know a culture than through their food.  Come and cook an authentic African meal with us.

This class will be full of new foods that you haven't had the chance to try before!  We'll start with Fried Plantains served with a Fresh Pepper Sauce.  When the appetizer is finished, you'll put together a Meaty Hand Pie that will go in the oven and bake as we make our two sides for the evening.  The first is a simple saute of Spinach, Onions, and Peppers and the second is a lovely and flavorful quick Tomato Stew.

Chef Instructor: Gabi Odebode
Chef Gabi Odebode was born and raised in Ghana in the western part of Africa. She has been cooking for 15 years. She has learned from great home cooks and chefs both from America and Africa. Gabi has taken culinary courses in food,  nutrition, and international cuisine. In the courses she took, chefs and home cooks not only taught her how to cook, but  helped her to understand the art of food, flavor profiles, textures, and other culinary skills. In her 15 years of cooking, she spent most of her years learning how to cook African food in Ghana and continued when she immigrated to the United States. In the United States, Chef Gabi learned how to cook other meals from different African countries. Aside from cooking African meals, Gabi also loves to develop and experiment with different recipes. She also enjoys fusing different cultural food together to create a new recipe. She has introduced and taught many Americans and non-Americans African food and cooking and the response was great. Gabi is always excited to give individuals the African experience through her cooking!
