  • Games of the world

    Encourage colleagues to share games specific to their cultural background such as Mahjong Tiles from China or Bocce from Italy

  • Learn the lingo

    Before your event, ask workmates to learn how to say ‘it’s delicious!’ in a language other than their own. Go around the circle and teach each other the phrase!

  • Decorate the area

    A Taste of Harmony doesn’t have to be restricted to food. Get creative and carry the theme from your dish through to decorations and turn your staffroom into a worldly display of different cultures

  • My grandma used to make…

    Encourage workmates to bring in a dish that their grandma (or grandpa!) taught them to cook, or which best reminds them of their grandparents

  • How old, how far?

    Encourage staff to bring recipes that have been passed down generations (and across the seas) by awarding a prize for the oldest dish and the dish that has travelled the furthest

  • Culture quiz

    A cultural trivia quiz could really spice up your lunch and create some fun and excitement

    Each staff member can contribute a song to a playlist of traditional cultural music to accompany your event
