Intercultural Communication Center (ICC)Waseda University

ICC Online Cooking Event: Connect Students across cultures through food (12/16) ◆Deadline: 12/9, 9am


Cooking, eating, and diving into a different culture.

・I couldn’t travel or study abroad because of the pandemic….
・I did an online study abroad program, but I couldn’t physically enjoy the culture of that country….
・ I want to be amazed by the different daily life experiences of other countries….

If you have had any of these feelings, this is a great opportunity for you.

The ICC will be organizing an online cooking event in order to create a chance for students to experience different cultures without going abroad.
In this event, we’ll be cooking Korean and American dishes.

You can join the event from your own kitchen simply by connecting to Zoom on your smartphone or PC. Your kitchen will turn into a real-life experience as though you were living abroad.

This event is not just a cooking class. Student supporters from each country will teach you about their food culture, as well as a unique way to enjoy the dish.
Moreover, you will hear their personal episodes! By cooking and eating together, you can truly feel the differences in food culture and eating habits.

You may love eating and cooking, you may want to have casual chats with students from overseas, or you may want to experience a different culture: Whatever your motivation for wanting to join this event is welcome.
Why don’t you try a “taste” of a different culture through cooking their local style, without leaving home!?
