Juanita Bass and Michael LaTreille hosted a Soul Food cooking school at Michaels Fine Foods & Spirits on February 20, 2007. Participants worked with Juanita and Michael in and out of the kitchen preparing Shrimp Gumbo, Collard Greens, Cornbread, Cucumber Salad, Black eyed Peas, Hush Puppies, and Sweet Potato Pie. Delicious!

The evening ended with a sit down 6 course yummy soul food dinner with Juanita and Michael sharing stories and recipes of their time together at The White House Berries Inn.

A highlight of the evening was Juanita’s sou chef, Hanna, an amazing talented 9 year old from the audience. Hanna planned to email Oprah the next day to say that Juanita was one of the people Oprah has to meet.

A grand evening!
