A Mosaic of Flavor livestream: Bhutanese Ema Datshi (Chili and Cheese Stew)

Wednesday, April 14, 2021 - 5:30pm to 7:00pm
Virtual Class

The Mosaic of Flavor cooking series is a collaboration between City Market and USCRI Vermont (US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants Vermont, formerly the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program). For our April class, we will welcome Suku Gurung, one of the cooks at Gurung Restaurant & Bar, a Nepali-Indian fusion restaurant on North Avenue in the New North End of Burlington. Suku will teach us to make Ema Datshi, often considered the national dish of Bhutan and also very popular in Nepal. Ema Datshi is a thick chili made from a variety of green and red chili peppers and homemade cheese, traditionally made in small batches from cow or yak's milk. To accompany the Ema Datshi, we will also prepare basmati rice. Suku was born in Bhutan, but moved to Nepal when she was a child. She learned to cook from her mother and father in Nepal, where their home cooking was a memorable part of her childhood. Suku moved to Vermont with her husband and two children in 2012. Suku has worked at a number of Nepali restaurants in Burlington and is excited to share her love of cooking with us!

This livestream demo class will be held on the Microsoft Teams platform, and joining instructions will be sent to participants in advance.
