Join Adama and Oumie, sisters and co-owners of Afella Jollof Catering, for an introduction to Senegambian cooking. They’ll share stories and unpack the culinary and cultural history of this West African region as they prepare two signature dishes. First up is Mafe, a mouthwatering peanut- and tomato-based stew that can be made with meat, fish or vegetables. To complete the meal, they’ll also prepare Jollof Rice, a popular one-pot rice dish.
With optional meat; no dairy, eggs or gluten.
About the instructors:
Raised in Gambia, Adama Jammeh and Oumie Sallah were long considered exceptional cooks by their Senegambian community, who encouraged them to start their own food business. In 2019, they founded Afella Jollof Catering in Seattle, a food business focused on quality, health and authenticity. Adama and Oumie create every element, down to the spices, from scratch. Afella means “tastes good” in the Serere language, and jollof is a local name for the people. After you experience their mouthwatering cuisine for yourself, you may think that "tastes good" is an understatement!
