    • Essentials of African American Cuisine with Malcolm Green

      Online,

      Join us to celebrate Black History Month with Cambridge native and Master Chef Season 4 contestant, Malcolm Green, and learn the essentials of African American cuisine. This virtual presentation will feature a Southern breakfast favorite (up North we love it for brunch!): SHRIMP & GRITS. Ingredients: 1 cup grits 1 pound shrimp, peeled and devined 6 slices bacon, chopped (optional) 2 cups parmesean cheese 1 large garlic clove, minced 1/2 cup diced tomato 1/3 cup chopped onion 1 cup thinly sliced scallions 3 tablespoons half & half 1 cup dry white wine (optional) 1 stick butter Salt & pepper to taste Gather up you taste testers and come cook with Malcolm! Registration is required. Zoom link will be sent out 3hrs prior to the event. Malcolm Green is just a kid from Cambridge who became a man of many trades. Born and raised in The Port (Market Street to be specific) by a single Jamaican immigrant mother. His passion for cooking came from watching his mother work hard all day then come home and cook immaculate meals. Malcolm began learning how to cook at an early age from joining his mother in the kitchen when she prepared meals for him and his sister. During his quest to make the perfect omelet, Malcolm realized cooking for others was his calling. Now, Malcolm uses his skill sets to promote healthy living through fitness and meal prep with his catering company, Malia's Catering (named after his daughter).
