Experience the fusion of flavors with Somali-born Somerville resident Nimco Muhammad-Hassan

Located on the horn of Africa, Somali food is a melting pot of cultural influence, and gathers flavors from East Africa, the Middle East, India – even as far as Italy!

Join the Somerville Arts Council as we experience the fusion of flavors with Somali-born Somerville Resident Nimco Muhammad-Hassan. Although she’s traveled the world, Somali food is her ultimate comfort cuisine – and in this case, comfort is all in the condiments. Nimco will wow us with a demonstration of preparing smoked yogurt (using hot charcoals) for the dressing for an eggplant Salad Lel Swit (Black Salad), and together, we will prepare Maraq cad iyo bariis, a traditional Somali meal consisting of a satisfying winter chicken stew and toasted rice, topped with a beautiful array of with fresh herbs, veggies and prepared salads and accoutrements. The real show stopper? The chutneys! We will prepare two different Somali sauces, bursting with international flavor.
