Taste of Africa Cooking Classes 

In honor of the fifth anniversary of the WE Center for STAR Women, Women's Empowerment International is pleased to announce the first STAR Center cooking classes.

STAR Center clients and chefs Olivia Laryea, of Ghana, and Hasno Ali, of Somalia, will each teach two classes in the foods of their home countries. The setting will be the Center for a Healthy Lifestyle, a sunny yellow cottage with an organic garden and modern cooking class kitchen in Solana Beach. (533 Lomas Santa Fe Dr., Solana Beach, 92075)

Taste of Africa classes will include printed recipes, samples of all the foods prepared and light refreshments. All proceeds benefit the STAR Center, WE's one-stop business incubator for refugee women in City Heights. The STAR Center is a partnership between WE and the International Rescue Committee.
