INSPIRATIONAL EVENT IDEAS
In addition to tasting ethnic dishes, staff members can dress up in ethnic costumes and give performances from the countries they represent
Ask colleagues to bring in non-alcoholic drinks such as teas and juices from different countries.
Games of the world
Encourage colleagues to share games specific to their cultural background such as Mahjong Tiles from China or Bocce from Italy
If time or staggered meal breaks are an issue, try a morning or afternoon tea in a communal area
Learn the lingo
Before your event, ask workmates to learn how to say ‘it’s delicious!’ in a language other than their own. Go around the circle and teach each other the phrase!
Share traditional desserts from countries around the world for a multicultural ‘high tea’
Decorate the area
A Taste of Harmony doesn’t have to be restricted to food. Get creative and carry the theme from your dish through to decorations and turn your staffroom into a worldly display of different cultures
My grandma used to make…
Encourage workmates to bring in a dish that their grandma (or grandpa!) taught them to cook, or which best reminds them of their grandparents
Encourage workers to bring a dish from the place they would most like to visit.
