A black and white image of eight men gathered around a table during a cooking class at Bethune-Cookman University. Cooking classes were offered as part of the vocational training program at the school. In this image, the men appear to be standing in a kitchen. The two men at the left are pouring the contents of a measuring cup into a bowl. A scale sits next to them with sugar on top of it for weighing. The four men to the right of them are helping mix ingredients in an oversized bowl. The other two men at the right of the image are watching the mixing; one man is pointing at the bowl. This man is possibly Charles Francis, director of dining. Kitchen equipment can be seen behind the students. Sitting on the table are the containers of ingredients the men used for the baking. From left to right: "Banquet Ground Nutmeg," made by McCormick & Co.; "Baker's Champion Breakfast Cocoa, a product of General Foods"; "Carnation Evaporated Milk"; "Pillsbury Sno-Sheen Cake Flour (Look! Cake Server, no extra cup!)"; and "Pitt's Velvets Oriole Imitation Vanilla Flavor." The photographer of the image is unknown.
