I do love to cook with people! We learn so much about each others food and life journeys while chopping onions. Today I made burritos with the Russell Sage College Nutrition Club to feed the cast and crew of Vieux Farka Touré  at the Sanctuary for Independent Media. Thank you all for the great work. Also thank you Mary Baldwin and Andrea for all your help, and in the end, here some of their nutrition tips:
