West African Cuisine is more than just a meal; it’s a celebration of culture, community, and friendship. West African Cuisine is a subtle and delicate balance between ingredients, technique, timing, spices, herbs and a caring culture.
Are you a chef or home cook who wants to enrich your menu with new cuisines?
Do you want to surprise your friends or family with innovative menu ideas?
Most importantly, do you want to have fun while cooking?
Join me in this charity cooking workshop, dedicated to supporting the dignity of young women in Nigeria. 10% of proceeds from the workshop and 100% of proceeds from the cookbook go to Beauty In Every Life foundation to prevent human trafficking in Nigeria.
I will teach you the authentic and traditional way of cooking West African dishes while showing you how to adapt it to meet your personal cooking needs.
You will also learn the background of the culture and food of Nigeria.
The workshop starts with a welcome drink, snacks and an opportunity to meet and network with fellow participants.
We will then proceed to cook in groups of 4 or 5.
At the end of the cooking session, we will sit together and enjoy the meals we created while soft African music plays in the background.
Finally, we will Dance! Dance! Dance!

Here is what our past participants have said
The cooking workshop was so much fun, recipes were delicious, and we learned so much about the food and culture. What a great date night event!
When we attended Ebere’s West African cooking workshop, we expected (and got) wonderful lessons in cooking technique, a delightful social experience, and a great meal. But something unexpected also happened: an introduction to an excellent, under-represented cuisine. The flavors are mostly familiar: a bit of India, a bit of New Orleans, and even some flavors evocative of Italy. The combination of the spices and the straightforward style of cooking were a real eye-opener, though. I predict that in 5 years West African will take the place that Thai cuisine now has, both at home and when we eat out.
Guess what my family is eating tonight? Nigerian Jollof rice. Thanks to Ebere for her hands-on cooking workshop. It was a fun experience.
Although various peppers are integral to Nigerian cuisine, West African dishes do not have to be spicy, and all dishes can be adjusted to accommodate Western tastes and preferences.
West Africa has a sharing culture. Because of this, most meals are eaten in the company of friends and family. We tend to create an atmosphere of fun and joy, where you will naturally connect with other people and form new friendships.
