Join renowned Ethiopian chef, Yohanis Gebreyesus, on his UK book tour at the Ethiopian Embassy, the book tour includes a meet-and-greet, book signing and an exclusive taster menu of recipes from his debut cookbook, "Ethiopia: Recipes and traditions from the Horn of Africa".
In this stunning cookbook that launched in the UK last year, Chef Yohanis takes the reader on a journey through all the essential dishes of Ethiopia, along the way telling wondrous stories.
There are recipes for Doro Wat, chicken slowly stewed with berbere spice; Yeassa Alichia, curried fish stew; and Siga Tibs, flash-fried beef cubes. The cuisine also boasts a wealth of vegetarian dishes. Among these are Gomen, minced collard greens with ginger and garlic; Azifa, green lentil salad; and Key Shir, marinated beet and potato salad. The book then explains the intricacies and variations of Injera, the foundational sourdough flatbread made from the teff grain (which is gluten-free and more nutritious than wheat).
Complete with photography of stunning landscapes and vibrant artisans by Peter Cassidy, this volume demonstrates why Ethiopian food should be considered as one of the world’s greatest, most singular and most enchanting cuisines.
"Ethiopia: Recipes and traditions from the Horn of Africa" will be available for purchase at the event.
Congratulations to Yohanis for being shortlisted in the annual Guild of Food Writers Award for the International Cookbook Award category for his debut cookbook, "Ethiopia: Recipes and traditions from the Horn of Africa".
