Cooking: Easy & nurturing recipes

Get your hands dirty to learn two easy recipes using locally sourced ingredients to prepare nutritious and delicious meals.


Learn two easy, nutritious, and adaptable recipes for the situation in the project you find yourself in. Beware that not all hosts will teach you how to cook or actively participate in meal preparation, it's very common for volunteers and the host to take turns to cook, so it's worth experimenting with some recipes at home so you can arrive with some cooking experience.

Bon appétit!
