Review: Fufu Workshop with the Minodu Team

On May 30th at 3:30 PM, the Minodu team would like to invite you to a Fufu workshop taking place at BOL 1. We are very happy to have our Togolese experts Victoire Tsamedi, Ousia Foli-Bebe and Séti Afanouwith us during the workshop. What is the Fufu workshop about? Fufu is a traditional dish from Togo and many other African countries. In the workshop, you will be introduced to the art of preparing Fufu, break a bit of a sweat, taste something delicious, and along the way, gather some impressions from Togo. Spoiler: It won’t look anything like the picture, because generative Artificial Intelligence really has no idea about Fufu.
