In recognition of Black History Month, the Center for Patients and Families, Interpreter and Translation Services, in partnership with Sodexo, will present a cooking demonstration featuring Peri Peri Chicken Kabobs, Jasmine Rice and Pickled Okra.
The demonstration will be held at noon Feb. 28 in the Magnolia Room of Terrace Dining in the AU Medical Center. Guests will learn the history of the menu, as Executive Chef John MacDonald demonstrate how to prepare this delicious cuisine. Participants are invited to sample all items on the menu.
Peri Peri, also known as Piri Piri or Pili Pili, is a hot pepper native to South Africa frequently used in sauces and marinades such as the one featured during the demonstration.
“Here at AU Health, we value diversity. In addition to Black History Month, we similarly recognize Asian Pacific Islanders Month in May, Hispanic Heritage Month in September-October and Diversity Awareness Month in April,” said Vivian Rice, manager of Interpreter and Translation Services.
