Cooking with the Austrian Ambassador!

On Friday, 27 September 2019, the smell of traditional Austrian dishes like Kartoffelgulasch and Kaiserschmarren perfumed the air of the GESS Cooking Lab as Grade 7 to 10 students from the GESS Cooking CCA whipped up these dishes together with a special guest for the day, the Austrian ambassador to Singapore, Her Excellency, Karin Fichtinger-Grohe. The recipes brought to the students, courtesy of the ambassador were a great starting point for conversations about Austrian culture and exploration of international cuisines. The students also relished the rare opportunity to get up close and personal with a high-profile diplomat in such informal settings and enjoyed every aspect of it! GESS is grateful to the ambassador for graciously joining the students during the CCA and adding an extra element of excitement to their pursuit of cooking!
