Time & Location

About the Event
My name is Mirabel Umenei, I am a cook, singer, songwriter, and founder of Motherland Cooking Xperience, the only African cultural experience in the USA. We showcase Africa and its diversity through intimate, unique, interactive, and authentic cooking demo experiences paired with live music, drinks, and storytelling from Africa.
As a child, while helping my mum cook Cameroonian delicacies, she'd share fun memories of her mom and grandma and their recipes. Now being far away from home, I see the importance of passing down this rich heritage to my kids, the next generation, and also to my new home, the USA. We are excited to share these recipes and stories with you. Our cooks are seasoned cooks from different African countries, each one bringing their own style, stories, and history with love.
So, come away with us to Africa!
What we will do:
We will visit various African countries together by cooking some of the best dishes from each region accompanied by live music and storytelling.
