Macey’s Cooking Cor­ner

Serve Daily - - FOSTERING GROWTH - By Afua Daines

One of the many things I like to at­tend is free demon­stra­tions given by lo­cals. This is why I ap­plied to host Macey’s Cooking Cor­ner. My name is Afua Daines and although I now live in Maple­ton, I didn’t start here.

My par­ents came from Ghana West Africa, and I was born in Eng­land. I grew up with aro­mas and smells of cooking that would make any­one hun­gry the minute they would walk through the front door. Meals, snacks and treats were al­ways made from scratch.

Living in the USA has helped me to re­al­ize it is up to me to cre­ate the world I want while living wher­ever I am. As the host for Macey’s Cooking Cor­ner, I get to bring lo­cals to­gether to cook and talk about who they are and what they love about cooking. This has helped me on a weekly ba­sis to bring the com­mu­nity to­gether by meet­ing dif­fer­ent peo­ple and watch­ing them cook from scratch and learn­ing about who they are, where they are and what they love about the food they are cooking.

Cooking brings a feel­ing of close­ness to yet an­other in­di­vid­ual. Food not only fills our bel­lies, but it is some­thing that makes us feel good about cre­at­ing and shar­ing it with an­other in­di­vid­ual.

Macey’s Cooking Cor­ner is held on Thurs­days at 7 p.m. at the Span­ish Fork Macey’s gro­cery store. Ad­mis­sion is free. Macey’s Cooking Cor­ner is some­thing we want ev­ery­one to come and en­joy. There are tasters, free recipes and an op­por­tu­nity to know an­other mem­ber from our com­mu­nity.

There will be a va­ri­ety of cooks and lo­cal chefs from the com­mu­nity and around Utah County fea­tured. So far we have had cooks/chefs from Span­ish Fork and Maple­ton and a show­case of Peru­vian cooking.
