Cooking together is an engaging way of learning about cultures and celebrating the lives of people who were murdered during genocide. In this activity, using digital technology, your organisation or community group can learn, cook and eat together, even while apart.
By taking part in a cook-along with members of your group, friends or colleagues, you can find out more about a culture that has experienced genocide, learn a new skill and make a delicious dish.
This activity is recommended for adult audiences and older school pupils.
