A Taste of African Heritage for Kwanzaa

By Aurora S. RSS Tue, December 15, 2020

Healthy Communities just wrapped a fall series of A Taste of African Heritage with instructor Paul O. Mims, who recently spoke with Oldways about Cooking, Culture, and Community During Covid

A Taste of African Heritage (ATOAH) is Oldways’ African diaspora culinary program. ATOAH features naturally delicious vegetarian dishes from the African diaspora. ATOAH invites us to cook and discuss spices, whole grains, beans, tubers, and Oldways’ African heritage food pyramid. The African heritage food pyramid not only features nutritious foods, but reminds us of the importance of enjoying healthy meals and physical activity together. Kwanzaa, "an African American and Pan-African holiday" celebrated from December 26 to January 1, also affirms the "well-being of family and community".

We are pleased to gather virtually with instructor Claire Richardson in her kitchen for A Taste of African Heritage daily from Saturday, December 26 to Thursday, December 31 at 2:00 p.m. to talk and share healthy recipes from the African diaspora. For a taste of what you can expect, follow along as Claire prepares Oldways Jollof Rice.

Register and join us as we "let the old ways be our guide to good health and well-being."
