Afro-Caribbean Cooking Workshop
Chef Godwin Ihentuge
Yum Village

We’ve wandered the globe (at least through our frame chef residencies) and time and time again we keep coming back to our favorite chefs who bring us multi-generational dishes and cooking styles taught by their parents and grandparents growing up.

Recently, we’ve fallen head over heels for Nigerian and Caribbean fare, rich in exotic spices and heavenly aromas from Chef Godwin Ihentuge of Detroit’s Yum Village.

Taking a break from his lauded culinary busy life, Chef Godwin brings his skills to frame for two consecutive cooking workshops — Tuesday, January 14th and Tuesday, March 10th — where we will gather in and listen closely as we hands-on learn to make Garlic Greens, Suya Chicken and Akara, vegan black eyes pea fritters.

Read on and learn more about Godwin on #Refrigeratordiaries, a content partnership with Foundation Hotel and Podcast Detroit.
And you too … will quickly see why we’re so smitten.

“Tried out frame as part of the ‘grandma’s basement series’ with Chef James (Mabel Gray) and Chef John (Grey Ghost). Our Italian Family Dinner was delicious! Enjoyed every course (which kept coming). Best meatballs I’ve ever had!! Love the idea of home Cookin with a little flare, shared Family style with strangers. A wonderful evening!”

Mark Kurlyandchik, Detroit Free Press

“The vibe at the Frame dinners also reflected the personalities of the chefs, who were able to interact with guests and offer stories about their food memories while cooking rustic dishes without the same expectations that come with their respective restaurants. The food was predictably great and unpretentious, but the series also highlighted the growing importance of personality and storytelling to the modern dining experience.”
