AFRICAN-INSPIRED TACOS | Saturday October 19th



Cook Space hosts a variety of classes for every level of cooking featuring our hands on approach. Private instruction also available in our studio or in your home.  

Taught by Cook Space Founder, Michelle Mannix, and Culinary Director, Chef Nini, this signature class guides 12 guests through a 4-5 course dinner driven by the seasonal ingredients and the principle of cooking from a place of improvisation, instinct, and joy.

With guidance from your culinary coaches, you’ll have set time to brainstorm, prep, produce, and plate, as you become familiar with complimentary flavor profiles in your approach to your dishes.

The group will dine together in the dining atelier enjoying each other’s creations, learning from their fellow students, asking questions of the instructors all while enjoying a beautifully prepared dinner with wine and community.

AFRICAN-INSPIRED TACOS | Saturday October 19th


Although two very different cultures on two separate continents, it’s surprising how many similarities there are in the foundations of African and South American cuisines. From rice and beans to spice and sauces, it’s no surprise that this flavorful fusion is as delicious as it sounds.

No one knows this better than Chef Zi, who was born in Zimbabwe and moved to the United States to live with a Latino foster family. The combination of his multi-cultural background, love of food, and enrollment at the Institute of Culinary Education inspires him to curate unique, culture-driven culinary experiences. Chef Zi has spoken all about his journey in his TedX talk, which students will have the special opportunity to view following class.
