Since January 2023, Common Cooking has been held every Wednesday in Leichlingen and has become a firmly established and popular meeting place within five months. People from different cultures and backgrounds come together here to cook, eat and share.
On Wednesday, June 21, 2023, the last joint cooking before the summer vacations was celebrated with a cheerful picnic in the New City Park behind the City Hall. Under the open sky the participants could enjoy the common meal and the exchange. Everyone was asked to contribute something to the picnic – whether it was a homemade dish, a delicious side dish or a refreshing drink. Drinks like water, apple juice and orange juice as well as bread were already provided.
The picnic provided a wonderful opportunity to further strengthen the community and share new culinary experiences. The variety of dishes brought and the creativity of each participant were discovered and admired. The participants were surprised by many delicacies and enjoyed a convivial time outdoors.
The joint cooking and the final picnic were a great success and attracted many adults and children who enjoyed the day until late in the evening.
The organizers sincerely thank all participants for their enthusiasm and participation and look forward to spending such beautiful days together in the future.
