Fostering Connection To  African Culinary Heritage

This program is a combination of classes, after-school activities, internships, apprenticeships, seminars, and a food expo designed to instill knowledge and skills of the African culinary heritage amongst diverse community members ranging from youth to adults and seniors who are either aspiring or active culinary professionals or part of the non-professional population. The African Culinary Heritage series will help students and participants rediscover Africa through food. The program can also be taught as an urban workshop and after-school programs to address the lack of African culinary identity in the younger generation and urban food sceneries. The summer African Culinary Academy is a six to eight-week internship program that provides an opportunity to youths aged 16 to 21 to learn, practice, and perform African culinary skills in professional restaurants settings. The Midwest African Food Expo will gather African food entrepreneurs and chefs to showcase the rich and diverse cuisines of the continent.
