Virtual Cooking Class With Zoe Adjonyoh: Birthday Celebration

15/05/2021 @ 18:00 - 19:00





This May, AZ celebrates our sixth Birthday. For over half a decade we’ve been amplifying the voices of LGBTQPOC and creating content that doesn’t just validate but exalts the range of lived experiences within our often-silenced communities. We want to celebrate this achievement with the people who made it all possible, our incredible intersectional audience!

Join us on Saturday 15th May at 6:00pm for a cooking class with world renowned chef Zoe Adjonyoh, of Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen to learn how to make jollof risotto with or without prawns.

The class will include:

  • Learn how to make your own jollof risotto from scratch
  • Presentation skills
  • Opportunity to ask Zoe questions
  • Recipe handout

The ingredients list will be emailed to attendees one week before the class.

Zoe’s mission has always been to bring the great flavours of West Africa to a wider audience and this has been acknowledged through great positive press and publicity for our food and concept, being named as one of “London’s hottest chefs” by Time Out and being named one of ‘The 44 Best Female Chefs’ by Hachette Cuisine France. She was honoured at the James Beard Foundation In New York and given the Iconoclast Award in 2018 and in February 2019, she was invited to speak at TEDXOxford about Food: Its Importance to Cultural Stepping Stones of Understanding and Exchange. At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Zoe converted her entire catering operation into a community kitchen to feed those most impacted by the pandemic (including the NHS staff) in her East London community of Hackney – serving 500 meals per week out of her home.

In April 2020, Zoe launched Black Book Global, a representation agency and platform for POC in the food industry. Currently, Zoe is working on her new podcast ‘Cooking Up Consciousness’ and is launching a new business ‘Zoe’s Spice House’ .
