Follow our blog so you don’t miss out on next weeks post about the most important piece in our NEI puzzle!
The infamous Carola is a fantastically one-of-a-kind woman. With art as a lifestyle, she has spent decades living in Africa, and more than half of her lifetime observing the beauty of the continent – through film, journalism, and varieties of beautifully artistic means.
NEI first encountered Carola at a Christmas fair in 2014, which she holds every year (amongst a potpourri of other events and activities) on her magnificent property,’garden of statues’, right here in Moshi, Kilimanjaro. Every year, this event portrays the work and products of over 160 individuals who set up between 10-15 stands – Epicurious Hedgehog being one of them!
During the course of the year, Carola also organizes themed diners, which she cooks directly in her (very non industrial) kitchen. With themes such as Hemingway or Maya Angelous’ recipes and texts, she decided to create one focusing entirely around the Epicurious Hedgehog products!
And to one’s absolute delight, the menu read as such:
Stay tuned for all of these recipes in our next blog post!
