Qué harás

CLASSES SCHEDULED WEDNESDAYS, but don't hesitate to contact me to schedule a private group of 4+ for another day.

Firstly, I will introduce my guests to my home with a traditional "welcome drink" - their first taste of the cuisine of another country.

Then we prepare a "Round The World" meal, using 3 recipes from various developing countries (from the Philippines, Indonesia and Mexico, to Burkina Faso in West Africa). First explain what we're doing, plus look at ingredients for each dish, so everyone is clear what they've doing. Then participants will work in small groups, each focussing on one dish, or a part of a dish.

There will be tasks for expert cooks, and simple roles for those who are not so comfortable in the kitchen. As we work, they will learn about the use of local herbs and spices, and some of the basic techniques which identify each country's cuisine.

Preparing the meal will take approx. 90 minutes, after which we will eat together. While we eat, I will share the stories of the people who taught me these dishes, and explain how this food would be eaten in the special celebrations of that culture.

Every two months I'll prepare a different menu, so that people have the opportunity to come again and learn more recipes if they wish. Happy class members will leave with full tummies, new friends and a folder with copies of all the recipes they've learnt that da

I've been cooking, sharing and learning new recipes for 40 years, ten of which I spent working in various development / disaster comms roles around the world. To relax, "Mama Jen" (or Sista Jen, or Tanta Jen, my local names) would sit at a local friend's table, sharing favourite recipes with Mamas and Papas of other cultures. Often, I volunteered with other cooks to prepare thousands of meals for displaced families. I've learnt so many delicious local dishes!

I believe that "a good cook is a sorceress who dispenses happiness", so even when I worked in disaster zones - where we'd be lucky to eat rice or 2 minute noodles, until some of the chaos was cleared away - I'd always take a big bag of herbs and spices, to put some flavour into our shared evening meals. For me, food and celebration and story are always intertwined.

Donde estarás

I live only 15 minutes north of Adelaide CBD. My home has a lovely big kitchen, and a spacious, open plan dining/ living area where I display some of my favourite paintings and furniture from my stays abroad. That's where we cook. We have a vegetable and herb garden to raid, lots of space to prepare and cook, and an elegant dining table already set up for the feast we're creating.

Jen was very friendly and welcoming into her home, to make dishes from around the world, literally. The three dishes we made were easy to make everyday family home cooking from West Africa, Lebanon and Russia. Her menu changes regularly and she is able to adjust to any special food requirements. Her cooking knowledge from numerous other countries was evident, as was her passion for what she does. A very enjoyable experience.
