- Out of Africa: February, Black History Month, is a terrific time to introduce the flavors, ingredients and dishes of African cuisine to your students, and you can get started by learning about Africa’s culinary history and trying one of the African-inspired recipes published in this article. (We call them “African-inspired” because they have been modified, as you might expect, to meet the constraints of a school kitchen.) After reading, visit our Recipe Library to find the featured recipes.
