Feasts of Resistance: West Africa & Cape Verde
Food & Drink
Cachupa, long identified as the national dish of Cape Verde, is a unique mix of meat, beans, and grains that reflects a diverse mix of Portuguese and West African cultures. In this class, we'll learn to make this dish, discuss the history of conflict the region, and sit down to enjoy a meal together at the end of class.
Hands-on, BYOB, class includes dinner around our farm table.
Your ticket supports Peterson Garden Project's cooking and gardening summer programming for Camp GirlForward, dedicated to creating and enhancing opportunities for girls who have been displaced by conflict and persecution.
Discover how food shapes culture and how conflict shapes food in Feasts of Resistance. In this six-class series, we'll explore how iconic dishes from cultures around the world—from Burma to Ethiopia, Syria to Haiti—were created or affected by social or political unrest.

Learning together in the garden, and kitchen, does much more than put fresh, nutritious food on the table. It helps build stronger communities, connect us to cultural heritage, improve public health and create a more sustainable, resilient city. Peterson Garden Project is a not-for-profit organization, and we're looking to inspire everyone we meet to grow and cook their own food and build community. If you love the taste of a homegrown tomato, are curious about growing food yourself, or are looking for a place to learn basic home cooking skills and make new friends over delicious food— then we're looking for you!
