Ethnic Exchange Cuisine

Culture Kitchen Employs Immigrants to Teach Cooking Classes

— December 14, 2011 — Social Good
Social business Culture Kitchen in San Francisco aims to teach authentic and ethnic cooking with the help of immigrant women who are both food lovers and experts in their native cuisine. The organization is connecting these women with other food enthusiasts who want to learn more about world cuisine.

These women get the opportunity to share a bit of their cultural background with others engaging in a cultural exchange with their students. With the growing popularity of cooking shows and food blogs, founders Abby Sturges and Jennifer Lopez aim to create unity among food lovers and to share cultural food secrets from the experts.

"While apps and blogs can share professional and personal tips to create international dishes, Culture Kitchen in San Francisco goes a step further by connecting local food lovers to immigrant women who teach them to cook authentic, ethnic cuisine as well as sharing their cultural background," wrote Springwise.

Culture Kitchen employs immigrant women who are experts at cooking their families’ dishes and gives them the opportunity to introduce those meals to a larger group of foodies. The organization has represented seven traditional cuisines thus far, including Mexican, Thai and Ukrainian with the hope of many more to come.
