Molly Brown, Mohamed Adullahi, Kahdar Abdi Dari and Paul Drowns work on a Sudanese dish together at the Eat the World cooking series organized by Drowns in Lewiston. The cooking classes were conceived when Drowns was working in the St. Mary’s Nutrition Center food pantry and was struck by the number of countries represented in Lewiston. Each cooking class features a different country and a chef native to that country leads the class. Bryton Mazin looks on from behind the group. (Andree Kehn/Sun Journal)
