Inspiring Community and Fostering Creativity Through Food

BY ASIA RIDDICK

What we eat and who we eat with goes far beyond food. It's a means of kinship that explores the importance of community.

Discovering parts of ourselves through the intimate nature of culture and cuisine delve into the complex dynamics of who we are. The relationship between food and community not only allows for re-discovery but serves as the link where we cultivate friendships and bonds. And at BrownSugarCollective's Nigerian Sugar Kitchen, a cooking class by creatives with creatives, it was just that.

The cultural incubator connecting and fostering meaningful relationships through events is a stomping ground to innovation with food, friends, and fun at its epicenter.

Hosted by content creator Nneoma Okorie with cooking led by, chef and founder of Egunsifoods, Yemisi Awosan the evening took attendees through how to make signature Nigerian dishes. But it was more than just food. Though jollof rice and chin chin crumble helmed the evening laughter, tweetable gems, and good vibes followed making it a Friday well spent!

In the kitchen creatives collectively worked together as they explored the culture and multi-faceted nature of Nigerian food. From, chopping to slicing, dicing, and mixing, it all made for a moment that extended beyond simply, learning how to cook. It connected creatives with, one another on a level that's symbolic of community and its significance.
