Come and learn to make Red-Red, a typical street food of black-eyed peas deeply seasoned found in Ghana, West Africa. It is named for the red Palm oil that it is usually cooked in. Although Asempe Kitchen eschews the traditional Palm oil, the dish still turns out reddish-orange for the tomato paste used. Meat can be added and we are adding chicken. You will also learn to make fried plantains.
