Iroquois White Corn Cooking Classes

Join us for hands-on Iroquois White Corn cooking classes!

Using our Iroquois White Corn products, an heirloom seed that dates back at least 1,400 years and is still central to healthy lives and healthy communities of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) people, you will learn about its importance, how to work with the corn to help prepare a tasty and healthy meal, then gather together to enjoy the food you've prepared.

With a holistic approach, Lauren Jimerson (Seneca) will lead the class to create not only healthy indigenous cuisine, but also a healthy community.
