Dear SIETARians, dear interculturalists,

As SIETAR we want to encourage the development and application of knowledge, values and skills which enable effective intercultural relations at individual, group, organisation and community levels. Inspired by many discussions in the SIETAR network the idea of publishing a SIETAR Intercultural Cook Book was shaped in the past months. Some of our national organisations already include culinary elements in their events calendar, such as SIETAR Austria with their event called “SIETAR Austria Culture Senses” or the event from SIETAR UK Culinary Indian food experience.

Our cuisine reflects our history! People connect to their cultural or ethnic group through similar food patterns. Food is often used as a means of retaining their cultural identity. The ingredients, methods of preparation, preservation techniques, and types of food eaten at different meals vary among cultures. We want to display this variety by inviting YOU to submit your favourite recipe with pictures to be published in our SIETAR Cook Book!

Deadline for submitting your recipe is 28 February 2017.

All submission must be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by the deadline above!

Please note that we can only accept recipes that use our SIETAR Europa template to be found here. Please also read carefully all instructions (including indications for max no. of characters etc..) on the first page of the template in order to be able to process your recipe into our cook book!

Warm regards and our best wishes for 2017!

on behalf of the SIETAR Europa Cook Book Team :)
