Sustainable cooking competition in German

Win a workshop with Maya!
We have partnered with Maya to offer a new, exciting sustainable food & German competition with an incredible prize: The winner classroom gets a cooking workshop with Maya, can chat to her about her channel and life in Germany, and practice their creative, cooking and German skills at the same time! Other prizes include Maya’s cookbook, fairtrade spices, and other prizes for second and third places.
- Find a recipe you have always liked and make it vegan! You can use Maya’s channel as an inspiration and alternatively also try out one of her recipes, or you can invent your own recipe!
- Then, record a short video of your cooking journey – a bit like Mayas videos – and try to use the German words for the ingredients you’re using! Please also tell us why you chose this recipe, where you sourced your products and what your motivation for trying a vegan dish was*.
- Finally, send the video alongside the recipe (in German) to GIMAGINE@goethe.de, either directly or via providers like wetransfer with a message referring to the competition. We will publish all German recipes in a virtual recipe book created by students from all over the UK. With your consent, we can also publish your video, but this is of course up to you!
*There are many different reasons for why we might be interested in eating more plant-based dishes, e. g. animal welfare or climate change. It can also be interesting to think about where our produce comes from, e. g. is it from our local region or has it travelled from a far-away-country, which makes it less climate-friendly? We can also think about fairness and ask ourselves what the production conditions for certain products are like and if they are fair for the people producing them.
We are looking forward to hearing from you.
