There’s no need to travel around the world to get a taste of international food, Joy of Feeding 2017 is bringing to grub to you.

This inter-generational and international annual fundraiser sees 13 home chefs from 13 different cultures serving up their favourite recipes at the UBC Farm, all to raise funds for the Centre for Sustainable Food Systems.

With the help of chefs from Vij’s, Cacao, the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts, and UBC Food Services, home cooks from countries like England, Colombia, Iran, Brazil, and Indonesia will be featuring their unique cuisines for festivalgoers to try.
