A few people got a chance to whip up some good food while benefiting a homeless organization.

It was all a part of the Haven cooking series fundraiser. Twice a month classes are held to learn about Bengali-Indian cuisine.

Nearly 20 people came out to the class for the Saturday session, each paying $20 to try their hand in a few recipes. That money goes to help out the Haven in Charlottesville.

“It's a culinary community social experience,” says Tonu Nauage, from the Bengali-Indian class.” So of course the culinary part is cooking the food and the community experience is the coming together in a social environment, and also helping a very important community organization like the Haven, which does so much for the homeless.”

Nauage and his mother are in charge of the class and help prepare the food with students.

The next cooking session takes place on February 7th and they will be preparing a vegan dish.
