About the event
Across multiple cultures, sharing a meal has been a nurturing way to connect and come together from the beginning of time.
Meet women in the Silver Sirens community, cook a meal together, grab a glass of wine or kombucha and enjoy the meal together.
Come, cook, eat and connect!
Welcome to our second meet, cook, and eat virtual supper hosted by Silver Sirens founder Faith Agugu and Robyn Howard.
"I never used to like dessert until I gave up drinking in 2001- now I can't get enough of it! My favorite though is puddings and what I consider savoury desserts. The Fried Banana Delight is a simple yet delicious dish that is one of my all-time faves. I can't wait to share it with you" - Faith Agugu
"I grew up eating basic healthy food. Though I did not like much food.
As an adult, I love food and have always known how it made me feel. I have just finished being in a 3-year dementia study and along with having an active mind, regular exercise, and Mediterranean food I am sure it has encouraged me to continue to have this type of lifestyle. I do have treats and I do slip up on exercise but my body loves it when I go with the Mediterranean eating and exercise. - Robyn Howard

Fried Banana Delight
- 100 gr self-raising flour
- 100 gr rice flour
- 10 ripe bananas (1.5 bananas per person)
- 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 30 ml water
- 30 gr sugar
- 1 teaspoon Lemon juice
- 1/2 box condense milk
- 2 teaspoons cooking oil -(olive oil optional)
Top with yogurt, blackberries, strawberries, or nuts
Step 1: Mix wheat flour, rice flour, and cinnamon into the bowl.
Pour in 300 ml water slowly and stir until the dough is smooth, then add 30 gr sugar and condensed milk and mix together. Then put the dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Step 2: Peel bananas. Flatten the whole banana or cut it into thin slices.
Step 3: Remove the mixture from the fridge.
Heat a cooking oil pan. When it is hot, dip the banana slices into the dough to cover evenly, then fry both sides until golden.
Take it out of the pan onto blotting paper, then dip it through the mixture and fry again. This way makes it more crispy. Do the same with the rest of the bananas.
When cool, top with yogurt, and fruit or nuts
