Cooking and Conversation with Pierre Thiam and Nicholas Fox Weber
Apr 08, 2021

Join us for an engaging cook-along with renowned Senegalese chef Pierre Thiam and acclaimed biographer and cultural historian Nicholas Fox Weber as they prepare fonio, a delicious and nutritious grain local to Senegal.

Ticket sales will support Keur Djiguene Yi, the Women’s Health Center in Dakar, which provides free healthcare to low-income women in Dakar.


Pierre will guide Nick and viewers at home through preparing a special recipe—fonio grits with salmon—while discussing the current state of affairs in Senegal and the work of Le Korsa. Questions and comments from the audience will be welcome. No advanced culinary skills are required, and please feel free to just join for the conversation if you can’t be in the kitchen at that time.
