Cooking Class - Healthy, Organic West African

In addition to introducing a new perspective for the palate, the recipes are healthy and organic, too, providing a fresh take on a wholesome meal.

I learned so much about the rich history of African food and culture thanks to Chef Afia! She taught us how to create healthy and delicious meals that were easy to prep and create within minutes. I really enjoyed the fact that she used simple, fresh and organic ingredients. Chef Afia is so welcoming and her home is absolutely beautiful.

I am originally from West Africa and I attended cooking school in Ghana. I am also a fashion designer, writer, and an artist. My cooking is African fusion: healthy, organic, and delicious. I cook with my collection of copper pots and offer an eclectic and comfortable dining ambiance, including a patio garden and Moroccan lanterns. I love experimenting with different spices, recipes, and healthy food and putting my own healthy twist on original recipes. Cook with me and taste Africa in style!
