African Cooking Class: Poulet DG, A Cameroonian Popular Dish

Join us for hands-on cooking class where participants will learn to make a variety of delicious dishes together, followed by a sit-down lunch where everyone can enjoy the fruits of their labor with new friends!

As its name suggests, Poulet DG (literal translation: GM i.e. General Manager Chicken) is a dish from Cameroon that locals consider superior to other chicken meals because it’s made for the boss (“Directeur General”). It has evolved from being served in fine restaurants to being included in special occasion meals at home, during festivities and for honored guests. It’s a wholesome meal, as it contains a variety of vegetables and plantains, cooked in stew with the chicken.
