Saturday March 25, 2017 Senegalese chef Pierre Thiam is popping up at the Southern Food & Beverage Museum in Central City New Orleans.
The event is called Jolof to Jambalaya.
For the uninitiated, jolof or jollof as it’s often known, is an ancient African dish similar to jambalaya. I took an African cooking class from Toni Tipton Martin when I lived in Austin and jollof was one of the dishes that the class cooked under Martin’s tutelage.
I make it at the house fairly often as for a dollar you can have a vessel filled with enough joloff to last half the week.
5 courses are to be served at the event.
