Program Description

Event Details

As part of Black History Month, the Denver Public Library will be hosting a virtual cooking demonstration with Konjo Ethiopian Food. Konjo Ethiopian Food is a fast-casual restaurant based in Edgewater Public Market. Edgewater Public Market is a fascinating food hall that opened late 2019, located near the Sloan’s Lake park area. The word Konjo (kone-joe) is derived from the Ethiopian language-Amharic. Konjo is an expression meaning beautiful. It is also interchangeable and can mean good. Ethiopian food is known for its colorful delicious dishes, rich spices and communal way of eating. In celebration of Black History Month, co-owners of Konjo Ethiopian Food-Yoseph Assefa and Fetien Gebre-Michael will walk us through an authentic Ethiopian meal preparation while sharing their history and knowledge. We hope you join us from the warmth of your home..
