Eden Eats NYC at The Cecil

This month on Eden Eats NYC, Eden Grinshpan visits chef Joseph "JJ" Johnson at The Cecil in Harlem to learn all about his passion for Afro-Asian cuisine and how migrant workers from China and Vietnam left their culinary mark on foods in Ghana, Nigeria and Senegal. JJ explains how it was a trip to Ghana that transformed his cooking. He teaches Eden some of what he learned there, like how to make creamy West African Peanut sauce, spicy piri piri and the secrets to his yasa. Bird's eye chili, garlic, okra and shallots make compelling cameos as Eden and JJ get ready to cook Nigerian roasted prawns.
