Recipes from our community is a series of volunteer-led cooking workshops that was launched in February 2016. These workshops create a space where people from our community can share and exchange cooking skills.
The Roulant is seeking new volunteers that would like to share their cooking skills while co-leading a workshop in this series with the guidance of kitchen co-manager Karine. No prior experience is required.
Here is a testimonial from our volunteer Kaori on her experience as a volunteer workshop leader:
“Last March, I had the opportunity to introduce people to Japanese home cooking at Santropol Roulant. It was a great experience! I would like to thank Karine, the Kitchen Co-manager, for her warm-heartedness and leadership.
I really enjoyed the chance to introduce my cuisine and work together with a bunch of people. I chose three recipes that would allow us to make the meal together rather than just be a demonstration, so that we could gain closeness and have more fun at mealtime! Since then, I have been regularly volunteering in the kitchen for Meal-on-Wheels, in the garden and other volunteer work.
I love cooking in general but not as a professional. When I first arrived in North America, a lot of ingredients were not accessible as they are today and I had to find alternate solutions. That was probably when I started to enjoy experimenting with new dishes and creating my own recipes.”
If this opportunity interests you, please contact Karine and she will help you make it happen!
My name is Tenzing Musu. I contacted you about a couple of months ago concerning your cooking workshop. I give Tibetan Cooking workshops and would like to volunteer and share some Tibetan dishes.
Thanks and have a great day!
