Global Vegetarian: West African Peanut Stew

Explore new regions in the kitchen with this West African vegetarian delight made with collard greens, sweet potatoes and peanut butter. Peanut stew, also known as maafe, is native to the Mandinka and Bambara ethnic groups of Mali in western Africa. There are many variations and room for customizations, so if you must have a source of protein other than peanut butter, lamb, beef or chicken make good additions. But our New Year’s resolution at Colavita was to figure out interesting ways to incorporate vegetables into our recipe collection to inspire you to do the same in your kitchen. What it lacks in meat, it makes up for in flavor. Thick from the peanut butter and served over rice, you definitely won’t leave the table hungry.

Colavita Challenge at Food and Finance High School: Round Two

Remember home economics class? Perhaps if you enjoy cooking, you have fond memories of making basic dishes such as biscuits, baked chicken and pasta for one school period, in perhaps your sophomore or junior year of high school. While for many schools across the U.S., home economics class is more of a thing of the past, Food and Finance High School in Manhattan takes it a step further by offering a rigorous professional culinary program to its curriculum. Students learn kitchen basics such as knife skills, safety and sanitation, and eventually progress to preparing and developing more complex recipes throughout their entire high school education. It is the only culinary high school in New York City and is tuition-free.
