Central PEI Community Navigator Peggy Miles is pictured with Nicole Yeba, who taught viewers how to make Congolese food through the Cooking with Culture classes the P.E.I. Community Navigators organization is currently holding. Miles said the idea behind the series is twofold: It provides a taste of travel when we’re all grounded due to COVID while also allowing Islanders to connect with newcomers.
Cooking with Culture classes with the P.E.I. Community Navigators are free and people can email Info.CommunityNavigator@CBDC.ca to check the availability for signing up. Classes take place every Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. AST time, and they prefer for people to tune in live. An ingredient list and a few basic instructions are sent to each participant before class so that they can prepare.
