Bunna Cafe isn’t just a vegan Ethiopian restaurant; it’s a music venue, an Ethiopian coffee ceremony center, a dance spot and sometimes, a cooking school. The Bushwick, Brooklyn neighborhood spot hosts cooking classes where it teaches the making of injera, the spongy teff bread used as a utensil for eating dishes like misir wot, a spicy red lentil stew. At the end of each class, the delicious results are shared amongst a happy group of wine-drinking cooks.
On September 3, Bunna will host a traditional Ethiopian musical storytelling event followed by a dance party. Ethiopian food will be available for purchase at the event.
