Sounds familiar? Let’s talk.

What is that?

Ew, why are you eating that? It stinks.

I’m not really into ethnic food like that...

That looks like something my dog would eat.

Adrian Sullivan

“As a diversity champion who has been cooking from a young age, I’ve learned the ability food has to bring people together and explore new cultures. I believe that food, like any art form, has the ability to open minds, spark exchanges of ideas, and build bonds. That’s what my food is all about, a little of this from part of my culture, and a little of that from another part, with pieces picked up along the way from relationships. A good recipe does more than provide a meal. It can tell you more about a person, a place, a legacy than words ever will, if you let it.”

What can a recipe tell you about cultural legacy?

How can we teach our children and each other to appreciate
