Cooking Programs

Do you want to learn how to make pad thai or pupusas?

Take advantage of the thriving food culture of Charlottesville by coming to a cooking program.  Learn to cook foods from all around the world.  The cooking programs are led by volunteers from UVA’s international community of students, scholars and families. See upcoming cooking classes and to sign up for them on our home page.

Do you have a favorite food that you know how to prepare?

We are looking for individuals, pairs or groups who would be willing to hold a 2-hour cooking session for groups of about 20 students.  It is a wonderful opportunity for you and a friend or two to share your culture in a fun and casual environment.  We cover the cost of all supplies. You may also review our Cooking Programs Volunteer Information sheet to learn more about leading a cooking program.
