Macey’s Cooking Corner
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.
