Africa is big: learn by cooking traditional recipes

25 March - 17:00-19:00 | Africa is the world’s second largest continent in both population and size. The continent is home to numerous and diverse nations, languages, cultures and traditions. Despite this fact, many people still treat/see Africa as if it were one country - one of the most misconstrued stereotypes about Africa. This activity intends to showcase the rich array of cultures and traditions from the African continent, but also deconstruct dominant narratives of Africa as a single country.

UCAS will teach you to make traditional African recipes from all over the continent. During the workshop the cook will not only explain how to cook the traditional dish, the cook will also share stories about the country where the dish originates from and some cultural, historical and religious aspects of the dish. In this way, everyone can learn and understand the different local cultures that are present in the African continent.

To join this workshop, you need to sign up in pairs. Once you have signed up for a certain dish, the ingredients will be provided. The video will be shared on an online platform.

Organised by United Community of African Students (UCAS)
