Prairie View A&M hosts a taste of African heritage

Oldways’ new cooking class program, A Taste of African Heritage (ATOAH), brings the African Heritage Diet Pyramid to life, shows people how to eat and cook healthfully, traditionally, and enjoyably through hands-on experience. With lesson plans simultaneously teaching history, nutrition, and cooking techniques, the program introduces participants to the rich cultural history of African heritage foods, while providing the tools needed to adopt the traditional ways of eating for better health in today’s life. ATOAH will be held on the main campus of Prairie View A&M University, New Recreational Center, every Wednesday February 8 – March 15, 2017 at 5:30 pm.

ATOAH is not just a series of cooking classes. It is an inventive wellness program designed to reconnect participants with health conscience eating and living habits originated from Africa.
