As we know food brings us together and allows us to get to know one another better. At KindWorks we’ve had a series called “Stirring it up in the Kitchen”, in which we gather together and cook meals from different countries while learning about each other’s cultures and traditions. Now we’re launching a series of international cooking lessons by our very own ‘celebrity chefs’ to continue the initiative and as a way to raise funds for our work. We kicked off the series with a Vietnamese cooking lesson and lunch by our Inspiration Day speaker Thu Tran, a refugee from Vietnam. We munched on rambutan and lemon grass, rolled our own summer rolls stuffed with broiled salmon and fresh veggies. You can see some pictures from this first fabulous gathering below.
We have an amazing series of monthly cooking lessons lined up. Our spring semester includes refugee chefs from Foodhini, the owner of the Pakistani restaurant Sakina Halal Grill (who quietly and generously feeds the homeless), and other amazing KindChefs specializing in Kashmiri, Peruvian and Egyptian cooking!
Let’s cook together and connect!
