Ethiopian Cuisine


Growing up in Tigray, Ethiopia with 10 other siblings, chef Tigist Reda learned at a young age how to cook for large groups. Her passion for entertaining turned professional in 2007 when she opened Demera to showcase the bold and vibrant flavors of her home country. Prepare to get hands-on as you scoop up dishes like doro wot—fragrant and spicy chicken stew—with the spongy sourdough flatbread known as injera. It’s the perfect communal dining experience, but we won’t blame you for not wanting to share.
