About your host

I’m the owner of Lasgidi Cafe, a mobile catering Nigeria restuarant right here in Phoenix. As the only one of its kind in central Phoenix, I pride myself of creating the finest Nigerian delicacies in the valley. I’ve been cooking Nigerian food for over 15 years and love the different dishes that I can recreate.

What we’ll do

You’ll start by getting a quick 5 minute history lesson on the country Nigeria and it’s cuisine. Quickly after, we move into the ingredients and spices that makes Jollof rice such a unique dish. Then, we prepare the jollof rice together as you listen to soulful Afro beats by some of Nigeria’s top artists. After the rice is prepared, we sit and dine and drink as questions are encouraged.

What I’ll provide

Dinner
Jollof rice, a flavorful spiced and stewed dish, is everything from “everyday lunch” to party or celebration dinner. The classic version is cooked with long- grain rice and seasoned with curry powder, thyme, and maggi cubes.
Drinks
Wine/beer will be served to guests 21+. Non alcoholic beverages available for other guests.

Where you'll be

The jollof rice tasting will take place in the backyard oasis of my lovely Phoenix home. Covered with turf and neat gravel, my relaxing backyard feels welcoming enough for strangers to feel at home. With enough seating on the patio furniture, bar stools, or the turf (if you so choose), my home provides much need comfort.
