|Dear friends and followers,We are thrilled to announce Global Kitchen’s next class: An Ethiopian Cooking Demo and Dinner Party with Bunna Cafe on Sunday, March 3rd! The evening will begin with chef instructor Kedija Ali doing a quick demo on how to make a classic Ethiopian dish, Injera, and explaining the spices and history of Ethiopian cuisine. The highlight of the evening will be a multi-course dinner featuring Injera, Gomen, Misir Wot, Shiro, Yeter Kik Alicha, Keysir, followed by dessert and a traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony.Our class will once again be held in the kitchen of Dun-Well Doughnuts in East Williamsburg, one block from the Montrose L stop. All dishes will be vegetarian friendly and gluten-free. This class is BYOB – if you would like to drink, we encourage you to bring beer or wine to enjoy while you cook and eat! We will also have some tej (Ethiopian honey wine) on hand for you to try.

What else we’ve been up to…
Since Global Kitchen’s last class, we’ve been busy building our business and raising funds for our 2013 operations. We held a hugely successful launch party in January, with close to 120 attendees and press coverage in the New York Times, Serious Eats, NY Magazine, and more! Our chef instructors were on hand with delicious Guyanese, Egyptian, and Senegalese food, paired with drinks from our sponsors.
This month, we had the honor of being named a semi-finalist in Harvard Business School’s Pitch for Change competition. We weathered Nemo’s storm and traveled up to Boston to represent Global Kitchen at the HBS Social Enterprise Conference.
In the coming months, we’ll be scheduling more classes, and competing as a social venture in the NYU Stern Berkley Center’s $200K Entrepreneurs Challenge and the Dell Social Innovation Challenge. We’re looking forward to watching Global Kitchen grow and we hope to see you all soon at more of our classes and events!
All the best,
Ryan, Pete and Leah
