Classrooms for Malawi is a new charity formed by individuals from a variety of backgrounds and age groups, most of whom are in some way involved with and enthusiastic about developing and improving education in Malawi. Fergal Gallanagh, our QA Manager, who has been involved with the charity for the past few years, organised an International Food Day at INCo to raise money for their projects.
The idea was simple: at INCo we have a number of employees of different nationalities and cultures. We asked them to cook and bring in food from their home countries (or their favourite foods) to be shared with all of us in exchange for a donation to the charity.
This is what our newly chefs prepared for us:
Nina (Congo): Caterpillars & Crickets, Chicken in a Peanut Sauce and Cassava Cake
Louis (Belgium): Thai Chicken Green Curry with Special Fried Noodles
Domas (Lithuania): Kugelis, which is a kind of potato pudding
Sarah (Scottish): Toffee Cheesecake
Kenny (Scottish/Indian) and Nims (Scottish/Indian): different mixed Pakora
Martin (Scottish): Chinese Chicken Soup
Lexie (English): Special Fried Rice with Spicy Curry in Chinese Style
What an amazing (and delicious) special day for a very worthy cause. If you want to be involved, please visit their website and donate!
