Join Chef Peggy to explore the many flavors of Suriname, a true melting pot of ingredients.
The tiny South American country of Suriname is home to people of Dutch, African, Indian, Indonesian and Indigenous descent, and the cuisine wonderfully reflects these cultures and the country's tropical climate and location on the Atlantic Ocean.
Begin with a traditional West African peanut soup, then explore Indonesian influences with a soy and ginger-basted baked chicken accompanied by bamie, Indonesian-style egg noodles from the island of Java. Finish the evening by making bojo, a rich cake made with coconut, cassava, sugar and coconut milk.
Guests are welcome to provide wine and beer to enjoy during the class.
Chef Peggy was amazing, we had a great time and the food was outstanding!!!

Chef Peggy brings a refreshing approach on cooking. I loved how simple and fresh her ingredients were. It reminded me that food doesn't have to be complicated to be healthy. The peanut sauce was truly amazing with the right amount of spice. Her space was very inviting and brought a sense of peace of mind along with great aromatics floating through the air.
all-inclusive: 2.5-hour class, 4-course meal and taxes.
With a strong focus on the healing qualities of food, Chef Peggy emphasizes mindful eating and teaches how to choose the healthiest ingredients in her interactive cooking classes. Armed with 10 years of experience teaching cooking classes and seven years as a caterer and personal chef, Chef Peggy enjoys crafting menus built around seasonal fare. Another accomplishment to add to the list: she won the bronze medal in the seafood category in the 2018 Caribbean chef competition.
