Soup & Salaam: Creating Community Over Ghanaian Soup and Conversation

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2020 FROM 6:00 PM TO 8:00 PM

THE KITCHEN AT CITYSEED – 817 GRAND AVENUE, NO. 101, NEW HAVEN, CT 06511

Join us for Sanctuary Kitchen’s seasonal series: Soup & Salaam! Soup & Salaam aims to bring the community together through the warm and nourishing power of soup and conversation. We invite you come and break bread over soup with our refugee and immigrant neighbors. It will be an inclusive space to share stories, deepen mutual understanding, and form real connections.

Each month, we feature a different Sanctuary Kitchen chef, a traditional soup, salad and grain of the country of origin, and their culinary and cultural stories. February’s comforting meal will consist of Ghanaian Ground Nut Soup with chicken and peanuts by chef Rahina. Rahina immigrated from Wa, Ghana in her late 20’s. She joined Sanctuary Kitchen because of her love for cooking. “I think cooking together with other people is a fun way to learn about immigrants in the community and understand their cultures. I am also excited to share my culture and teach something I am good at and proud of.”
