The «Cuciniamo insieme» (Cooking Together) project in Lugano is an example of the idea that food and drink go well with stories and reading.


At the meetings the participants not only exchange recipes from their country of origin, but they also tell stories to each other. These are recorded in the blog «Narrative Kitchen» and they hope to soon produce a book.


Zentrum5 and the PBZ Hardau also organize cooking workshops. At the «Café Mo & Do» project in Thun special coffees and teas are presented and tasted. For many years the intercultural library in Geneva has been collecting cookbooks from around the world.
