Description

A Taste of African Heritage: Demo and Tasting with Oldways

Presented by The Trustees and Oldways

Are you looking to expand your global palate? If so, this is just the cooking class for you! Join the Oldways African Heritage & Health Program for "A Taste of African Heritage," a fun and informative session about African heritage foods.

We’ll take you on a tour of the plant-based foods of Africa, the Caribbean, Latin America, and the American South. Learn about the spices and herbs, leafy greens, whole grains, beans, tubers, fruits, and vegetables that have sustained Africans and their descendants for generations. We’ll demonstrate a few affordable, delicious, easy, and nutritious recipes that you’ll get to sample.

The Menu:

  • Oldways Senegalese Sweet Potato Peanut Stew (Mafe)
  • Oldways Cold Black-Eyed Pea Salad
  • Oldways Tangy Collard Greens

Please note that the food at this class will contain peanuts. Unfortunately, we cannot accomodate peanut allergies as there may be contamination between recipes. All food in this class will be gluten-free, dairy free, and vegetarian.

This is a great opportunity to learn more about how you can become a part of the A Taste of African Heritage community. Get the scoop on how you can attend or even volunteer to teach a full six-week A Taste of African Heritage class series.

Cost is $5 per person. Please purchase a ticket to secure your spot.
