Culinary Literacy classes

Athens-Clarke County Library to offer free ESL Culinary Literacy classes in February

ATHENS, Ga. – The Athens-Clarke County Library announces its next ESL Culinary Literacy
series starting Monday, Feb. 4. The six-week series of classes will combine nutrition and cooking instruction with English language education for non-native speakers. ESL Instructor Terry Salguero and Chef Shawanda Nicole Johnson will lead the classes at the library. Classes will be held on Mondays from 10:30 a.m. to noon from Feb. 4 through March 11. Each week’s class will be repeated on Wednesdays from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. through March 13. Participants will learn how to read recipes and measurements in English and how to use math to adjust recipes. They will also learn new English vocabulary and practice language skills. The program uses the Edible Alphabet curriculum, which was developed by the Free Library of Philadelphia’s Culinary Literacy Center. Edible Alphabet is a unique teaching model that combines nutrition and cooking instruction with English-language education. The curriculum uses recipes that can be completed in a minimal kitchen setting, and in some cases, with no kitchen at all! All supplies will be provided, and the classes are free. Limited seating is available, and free registration is required. Participants can sign up for one or more sessions. Call the library at (706) 613-3650 to sign up or to learn more.

The Athens-Clarke County Library’s Culinary Literacy series is made possible by an American Dream Literacy Initiative grant by the Dollar General Literacy Foundation.
The library is located at 2025 Baxter Street, Athens. To learn more, call the library at (706) 613-3650 or visit
