This full-color illustrated curriculum is used by our volunteer teachers to lead our six-week A Taste of African Heritage cooking series based on the Oldways African Heritage Diet Pyramid. The Teacher's Handbook for A Taste of African Heritage (ATOAH) is part of the ATOAH curriculum. After you place your order, a member of the Oldways staff will contact you with an agreement form which explains the proper use of the curriculum, along with other information about teaching an ATOAH class. Your handbook will be mailed to you when we receive the signed agreement form.
The curriculum consists of six exciting lessons that will introduce you to healthy, plant-based African heritage foods from continental Africa, the Caribbean, Afro Latin America, and the American South. Leafy greens, sweet potatoes, millet, couscous, lentils, and chickpeas are just a few of the African heritage foods you will encounter in this volume. Each lesson is composed of a script combining cultural history and nutritional information, recipes, shopping and cooking guides, homework assignments, handouts, and menus.
