A Taste of African Heritage at the Tower Road Branch Library

Oldways’ innovative cooking class program, A Taste of African Heritage, brings the African Heritage Diet Pyramid to life, showing people how to eat and cook healthfully, traditionally, and enjoyably through hands-on experience. With lesson plans that simultaneously teach history, nutrition, and cooking techniques, the program introduces participants to the rich cultural history of African heritage foods while providing them the tools they need to adopt this traditional way of eating for better health in modern day life.

A Taste of African Heritage is more than just a series of cooking classes. It is a new kind of wellness program designed to reconnect participants with vibrant ways of eating and living that once promoted the health of African American ancestors everywhere.


                                 A Taste of African Heritage is on Wednesdays from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.

                                                         Dates: 2/6, 2/13, 2/20, 2/27, 3/6, 3/13

                               This program is registration only, up to 15 participants. Please register online.


This is a great opportunity for both tweens, teens and their parents to learn to cook healthy delicious recipes together!
