A Taste of African Heritage Cooking Class: Demo & Tasting with Oldways

Looking for more cool stuff to do?
We've got tons more fun events and programs in your area – sign up for our monthly enews here!

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:

  • Senegalese Sweet Potato Peanut Stew (Mafe)
  • Cold Black-Eyed Pea Salad with Seasonal Veggies
  • 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.
