The Diversity of the East African Cuisine


with William Tarimo

Calendar Feb 12, 2022 at 1 pm, runs for 3 weeks

In this short series course on the East African Cuisine, we will explore the diverse nature of the food and surrounding cultures offered in the several countries in the East African region, especially in the coastal regions such as Tanzania - which is where I'm originally from. Most of the East African foods and traditions around food are largely influenced by location, ethnicity, past migrations and trade, and religion. The major players are therefore the Bantu ethnic groups, Indians, Arabs, Christianity, and Islam. The course will explore these aspects in detail, plus the preparation of some Tanzanian dishes.

William Tarimo is a Tanzanian, and an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Connecticut College. With passion in research and causes in Education, EdTech, and Robotics. I enjoy cooking, painting, carpentry, 3D printing, and photography.
