Riz Gras aux Légumes
Thursday June 17, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 5:30 pmFree
Twin sisters Rachel and Jeanne came to Maine from Burkina Faso in West Africa and have lived in Bath for a little over two years. As children, they loved following their mother around the kitchen, so starting at a young age, she taught them to cook. Here in Maine, they enjoy educating others about their culture through food.
Rachel and Jeanne will be making Riz Gras aux Légumes and a ginger juice for this week’s cooking demo. You may have already seen her Wedding Ginger Juice in the Maine Bicentennial Community Cookbook!
Rachel and Jeanne will also be telling us about a program they’re involved with called Midcoast New Mainers Group, an organization that bases their work on their shared values of providing support to those who have fled desperate conditions at home and have come to Maine to build a new life.
