First, get searching and find 3 recipes from a country in BGO (or 3 different countries) and prepare a starter, main course and dessert for your family, friends or in your Unit groups. 

Alternatively, you could find 6 ingredients from 6 different countries and create your own meal from the ingredients – more like an international mystery meal!

Then, why not treat your family, friends or Unit to an international meal – try decorating your table with the colours of the countries, flags, you could even dress up in the country colours. 

Take it further Unit ideas: -work in groups to select your country (countries) and recipes. Each group could be allocated a different course to prepare. 

-Leaders: provide each group with 6 ingredients from different countries and hold a ready, steady, let’s cook meeting and see what dishes can be created.

-Hold an International themed meeting featuring several different BGO countries and their foods, cultures, music and much more. 

Virtual meetings: -Leaders may wish to select recipes / courses or countries for girls and they can prepare their dish at home and share what they have made with the Unit, facts about the dish and the country.

-Provide or ask the girls to source 6 different ingredients and create a dish of their choice in an allocated time. Share the products and dishes at your virtual meeting. 

-Why not combine this activity with our Together in Friendship – BGO Detectives! activity?
