Experience Details

Get ready for a warm and personality-filled night as Chef Eji lovingly introduces you to the food of her childhood and its rich history.

A graduate of food incubator La Cocina (which enables low-income food entrepreneurs to pursue their dreams), Chef Eji will be cooking up three courses of traditionally prepared Ethiopian cuisine with an autumnal twist. She will guide you through the meal with her tips on Ethiopian cuisine and anecdotes starting from growing up in Ethiopia all the way to deciding to take the leap to start her own food business.

Chef Eji's dream is to one day open her own eatery to promote sustainable eating. Until she gets there, dinners like these are the only times when you can enjoy both her food and her company.

Don't be too surprised if you want her to be a part of your family at the end of the night.

Eji's Ethiopian Story

In early 2011, I decided to follow my passion and launched my small food business, Eji's Ethiopian. I was brought up learning family recipes, which is how I learned to cook one of my favorite dishes 'miser wot' - spicy red lentil sauce; it is now my signature dish and a taste of my childhood that I love sharing with others.

My dishes are cooked in La Cocina's kitchen, where I learned the tools to become a successful small food business owner. Now chef and owner of Eji's Ethiopian, I offer amazing Ethiopian vegan dishes including a variety of legumes, tofu, and vegetables. My menu changes often to reflect seasonal vegetables and dishes from different regions of Ethiopia. What remains constant is the traditional fermented teff injera and some of the flavorful sauces, which are slowly simmered with caramelized onions and Ethiopian spices using family recipes.

I can't wait to share a piece of my childhood love for home-cooked Ethiopian meals with you.
