1st Cross-Cultural Cooking Event.

The Association of European Border Regions together with the EUREGIO organized their 1st Cross-Cultural Cooking event on the 25th of May. The event took place in Glanerbrug (The Netherlands), in the Dutch building of EUREGIO.

There were 15 delicious dishes from 10 different countries, represented by the staff of the AEBR and EUREGIO. The whole event started with welcoming words of the Secretary General of the AEBR, Mr. Martin Guillermo Ramírez, telling why he came up with the idea to organize such an event, which is the beginning of a good tradition for the future. Since the two institutions are represented by people from different countries, the variety of dishes and countries for this first event was quite big.

Such dishes as Obazder with Bavarian bread, Onion Tart, Semolina pudding with sauce of fresh mashed strawberries, Schwarzbrot, Meat Balls and Salmon Roll with Spinach were represented by German colleagues, Pudding with Speculaas was made by Belgian colleague, from Mali we had Loko (fried plantain), from France – Quiche Lorraine, from Marokko – Puff pastry filled with almonds, Russia was represented by Herring salad, Georgia – by Lobiani with beans, Indonesia – with Sateh with peanut sauce, Turkey – with Dolmah and Spain was represented by Martin Guillermo Ramírez, who made Spanish Sailor’s Paella right in front of the building where the whole event took place.

This cross-cultural event could be a good example for any multicultural institution, which is easy to organize and tasty to attend.
