Two award-winning chefs join forces at The Market Place restaurant in downtown Asheville this Wednesday, March 21, starting at 6:30 PM. They will prepare a gourmet, five-course dinner of West African-inspired cuisine.

Chefs William Dissen & Nick Figel (from The Market Place and Cyprus Restaurant respectively) will prepare yam fufu, joliof rice and chicken yassa. The dinner will present inspired interpretations of authentic West African dishes, as well as cocktail creations. A performance of West African drumming and dancing will enhance this cultural evening by the musical talents of Zansa.
