With a lot of mood and to the rhythm of rattling pots and pans, some of the international students of Varna University of Management at the Dobrich campus participated in the traditional culinary competition among the nationalities. Apart from being a “kind host”, the professionally equipped kitchen of the university was also an improvised stage for the “parade” of national dishes from Italy, France, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, the Philippines and, of course, Bulgaria. The food was prepared by the students for their colleagues, who by anonymous voting and after a hearty tasting, chose the most delicious dish. The representative of Uzbekistan Madinabonu Chorieva was awarded because she impressed the audience by preparing an almost complete menu on her own – starter, side dish and dessert. Of course, everyone was awarded, but the most valuable thing in this event was undoubtedly the opportunity for students to learn about foreign cultures and traditions and to communicate with each other.
Student activities are a major attraction for young people who have chosen the path of the intercultural learning environment, because in everyday meetings, both formal and informal, true knowledge and skills are acquired and developed.
