Homemade Cooking with Philomina Emeka-Iheukwu Virtual Zoom Event
Please join us for this online Zoom event.
Learn about diverse traditional foods and the people who make them during Homemade, a series of conversational cooking demonstrations. Joined by folklorist Hannah Davis, a faculty member in RIT’s School of Individualized Study, demonstrators will recount their experiences as newcomers in the Flower City and share favorite family recipes.
Philomina Emeka-Iheukwu will prepare two traditional recipes: yam pottage and chicken stew. Born in Nigeria, Philomina moved to Rochester in September of 2008 and quickly discovered how difficult it can be to eat a balanced diet in America. Learning of the harmful effects of obesity, she made it her mission to create recipes that were not only healthy but so delicious that everyone would enjoy. She has published multiple books, filmed a cooking show, and opened a kitchen to share her fresh and delicious food with the community. You can often find Philomina at her popular stand at the Public Market.
This project is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
