Cheb ou Jen, the National Dish of Senegal, with Marianne Tshihamba

Saturday, October 19 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm


In this interactive cooking class, Marianne Tshihamba serves up dishes inspired by her travels. Thiebou Dienn (pronounced CHEB-oo jen) or Cheb, is Senegal’s national dish, whose cuisine is finally being recognized as one of the best in the world. With its rich, spicy, tomato-based rice and seafood combination, it’s like paella on steroids! Take your taste buds on a tour of Senegal and experience an authentic version of an iconic dish.

Join Hill Center and Marianne as we explore the National dish of Senegal!

Complimentary beer and wine are included in the price of the course!

An ingredients list and recipes will be sent out following the class.
