Food is something close to many of our hearts, and the way we eat says much about our own culture and others. We’ve seen how much you like to talk about your culinary adventures on our forum and now we’d like to invite you to share some of your own cooking with us! Since we’re all in different parts of the world, and since few things bring people together the way food does, we’ve decided to set a cool culinary challenge so that we can all show the world our skills while learning about other cultures and trying something a little bit different.
What? Cooking challenge
When? April 8th - 30th
Where? This very thread on the Gengo Community Forums.
Who? All Gengo translators are invited to participate!
How? Find a Lebanese recipe of your choice and recreate it, take a picture, and share it with us – and of course taste and enjoy it!
The world (or Google) is your oyster – this is the perfect opportunity to learn more about Lebanon while you surf the internet in search of the perfect recipe. Feel free to substitute ingredients to suit your dietary restrictions, or when the original recipe calls for something that’s not available in your country. We’ll be sharing a selection of your submissions on our social media channels, so the world can enjoy what our translator community is up to!
3 lucky winners will be announced at the beginning of May!!! Prizes will be awarded for the most mouth-watering, most creative, and most voted contributions.
And that’s not all! If you enjoy these types of community-oriented activities, we’d also love to hear suggestions for future cookouts or other fun challenges that we could plan for the future! In particular, we’d love to hear about other cuisines that you’d enjoy exploring, since we chose Lebanese at random but there are so many other great options that we could have run with. Feel free to share your feedback directly via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Whether you’re an occasional cook or a masterchef in the making, we’d love to see the results of your culinary adventures. We’re already salivating waiting for the first participant!
