Let's Talk Food!
We have food every day. Something as mundane as food can spark interesting conversations.
Let’s talk Food! is a workshop in which we discuss and share our passion for food. Share with us your favourite dishes, ingredients, and cooking methods. Tell us how certain types of food give you that nostalgic feeling or remind you of a distant memory. Discuss why you do not like certain foods with your peers. You can also listen to your peers’ food-related stories. You may be convinced to try some new foods yourselves. Foods represent a part of our diverse cultures. Foods connect traditions with moderns. Foods transverse any borders.
Come and join Let’s talk Food! to let food bring us all together.
