A group of Gainesville residents have been spending their Saturdays to learn, cook and taste healthy food at “A Taste of African Heritage: The African Heritage Community Cooking Program,” sponsored by OLDWAYS, a non-profit organization that promotes healthy eating and drinking.
Taught by Gainesville dietician Jean Michelson, the cooking class was held Saturday at the King Center.
Participants prepared and cooked together using a variety of vegetables and grains. The remaining classes in this six-class series will be held at noon Saturday, and also March 22 and March 29.
Classes are free, but a one-time $10 donation to Bread of the Mighty Food Bank will be accepted.
