When it comes to The Foundry, there are a couple things that you should know. First of all, whatever it is that they are introducing to their collective, you can bet that it’s going to be different. At the same time, you can rest assured that it’s going to be good. Take. for example, the introduction of Nana Amma’s Vegan Ghana Kitchen. On Saturday, December 13, 2014, the community is invited to stop by The Foundry to taste a number of vegan Ghanaian dishes prepared by with a lot of love by a vegan chef who is relatively new to Buffalo.
In what appears to be a culinary twist to its “normal” routine, The Foundry is incorporating Nana Amma’s Vegan Ghana Kitchen into its Second Saturday line-up (see Facebook event).
When you stop by and order a plate of food for $5, you will not only be supporting a culinary start-up in Buffalo, you will also be contributing to a worthy cause – Vegans for Africa (VFA). VFA was started by Nana Amma Serwaa Gyamfi, a “homemade chef” with Asante roots, who moved to Buffalo from NYC. Nana founded her cause in order to raise money for needy communities in Senegal and Ghana. Nana feels that she has the power and ability to heal through her food, not just on a spiritual level (locally), but by providing resources to those who have relatively few (worldly).
Nana’s bent is on traditional flavors and health values. That’s why she subscribes to vegan values that transcend the food into the body. Whether it’s the Red Red (Bean Stew with Plantain) or the Nkatenkwan (Peanut Soup with Okra & Carrots), food lovers will delight over the variety of traditional, complex, and soothing dishes that Nana is serving up this Saturday. So get ready to eat some good food, contribute to a good cause, and welcome Nana Amma’s Vegan Ghana Kitchen to Buffalo.
Nana Amma @ The Foundry | 298 Northampton | Buffalo NY | Saturday, December 14, 2014 | 12:00pm – 4:00pm
Update: Nana Amma will be back at The Foundry on Saturday December 20 for the Last Minute Gift event, from 12pm-4pm.
