Sowing Roots: Online Caribbean Cooking Class

This workshop is part of the Sowing Roots: Caribbean Garden Heritage exhibition and project.

Join Nika on the journey to her homeland, Jamaica via your kitchen and pot! In this 2 hour interactive online cookery class you will gain an insight into the history of this beautiful Caribbean island, including the influences around its culture and cuisine. We will be using popular traditional ingredients to create a delicious Friday night dinner which will make you want to dance to reggae music!

Over the 2 hour class you will cook your own meal for 2, plus there will be plenty of time for Q&A with Nika on Jamaican cuisine. This class is open to all levels of skills and interests.
