After a brief hiatus this summer, Taste of Africa returns to Mola Foods on Friday, November 18 at 6:30 p.m. Featuring live music by Rabihah Ruby Shabazz, the event will take guests on a culinary tour of Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Kenya, and Somalia. For those with dietary restrictions, each dish will also be offered gluten-free or vegan.
“Welcome to Africa,” said LaFortune Jeannette Djabea, owner of Mola Foods in Nashua. “Taste of Africa is my open-hearted invitation to come experience a bit of my culture right here in New Hampshire.”
For Djabea, African cuisine is a gateway to African culture, a message that has caught on with the media, too. Mola Foods will be featured on NH Chronicle on WMUR News 9 on Thursday, October 6.
“I am thrilled by the opportunity to share African cuisine and culture with people in New Hampshire and northern Massachusetts,” said Djabea. “If I can surprise people with the beauty of African Food, I think that is an important step in people reconsidering what they think they know about Africa itself.”
