ActiviteitCooking together in Het Wilde Westen

Locatie Keuken Het Wilde Westen

Since August 2021, it is possible again: cooking together with your (language) buddy in community culture house Het Wilde Westen. This happens in various groups; just with women, or with a group of (young) men. There is also a mixed group. Either way; it is always fun. Tasty and varied, because the dishes come from everywhere. And you can practice Dutch too. The setup is simple. You are told in advance which - vegetarian - dish you are going to make: soup, a warm starter, pasta or rice, a salad or a dessert. You buy the ingredients together with your (language) buddy, cook with your buddy and three or four other buddy couples in Het Wilde Westen's kitchen, and eat it together at a big table in the room next door. 'It was a fun, meaningful, and sociable evening,' said a Dutch volunteer who participated with a Syrian young man. 'Shopping together, cooking and eating and meanwhile chatting in a good place. This is worth repeating.'

There are three buddy cooking evenings every month. Would you and your (language) buddy like information or to join? Then send an email to
