Cultural Cooking

Prepare and enjoy a traditional meal from different countries throughout the world.

Our cultural cooking workshops are led by a community co-animator from the neighbourhood who has recently arrived from the country we are presenting. They work together with our Food Skills Team to create a traditional menu to share with participants. The cultural co-animator also shares a small presentation on their country of origin. This workshop welcomes up to 35 participants who divide up into teams and prepare one of the four recipes selected. When its ready, we sit and enjoy the meal together.

This is a family friendly event with fun kitchen tasks for kids as well as an activity table and facilitator to accompany them. This activity is a great way to learn about a different culture, get to know members of your community, learn new recipes, and enjoy a unique and delicious meal.
