Food is an intrinsic part of culture. Trying unfamiliar cuisines and sharing meals with others can help us understand the significance of cultures’ family dynamics, styles of interaction, social priorities, manners, history, holidays, and much more. Similar dishes or flavors can reveal how cultures have spread, influenced, and mixed with others across regions and oceans. If we can learn to eat together, we can learn to live together.

Even in the comfort of our own homes, we can experience new cultures by sharing our favourite recipes. We know you’re eager to explore the world. We, AFS, are, too. Luckily, this can start in our kitchens.

Get involved!

If you have a favourite recipe you’d like to share, send it to us using the form below. We will add the recipe to our list as soon as possible. Let’s explore new cultures and new foods together!
