    What to Expect
    Daniel and his wife Tigist are from the Oromia region of Ethiopia but love to cook dishes from around the country, so prepare to be served pan-Ethiopian cuisine. Tigist learned to cook helping her mother around the house as a child and ran her own kitchen after marrying Daniel, who has a master's degree in Social Anthropology and is a tourism professional - he's led trips around Ethiopia for over a decade!

    Daniel speaks perfect English and enjoys discussing diverse subjects from food and history to politics. He loves meeting people from different cultural backgrounds and sharing his rich heritage with them. They are blessed with three handsome boys who may join you during your experience if it's on a weekend.

    Your cooking class will take place in Daniel and Tigist’s home kitchen. During your 1.5 - 2 hour class, Tigist will show you how to make a traditional Ethiopian dish as well as how to pour and cook the perfect injera. You might learn to make shiro (chickpea or broad bean stew) or tibs (stir-fried meat with vegetables and spices) in addition to injera. You will also learn to roast coffee beans. If you're interested in learning to make an additional dish, include it in advance when making your booking - please note that it will extend the cooking time.

    You will be picked up and dropped off after your experience. Please remember to include your hotel name and address when making your booking.

    It was truly a lovely experience spending time with Daniel and Tigist in their kitchen learning how to cook Shiro Wat and injera. The food was amazing, the company even better and the coffee was magical. Thank you both for a wonderful time.

    I can’t recommend Daniel & Tigist’s cooking class highly enough! My husband and I took this cooking class as a part of our honeymoon. Daniel was doing another tour, so we were fortunate enough to have Yade pick us up from our AirBnB and give us the market tour. He explained
