For Black History Month 2021, Chef Bashir Munye hosted an interactive cooking class for Interac Corp. employees teaching them how to make a vibrant dish inspired by North and East Africa.
A culinary adventurer with a decidedly nomadic approach to food, Chef Bashir is one of Canada's top chefs. Born in Somalia and raised in Italy, his knowledge of international flavours and techniques knows no bounds and every opportunity to interact with him when he cooks is a pleasure.
For this Interac event, Chef Bashir created a vibrant pan-African dish featuring savoury Chicken/Oyster mushroom tagine, zesty roasted okra salad, and fluffy seasoned couscous.
If you missed the event, don't worry; you can make this delicious meal right at home!
