What’s Cooking in Diplomacy – Japanese cuisine at Miele’s showroom

Spouses of Heads of Mission (SHOM) Association will be cooking at Miele’s showroom to support Warsaw-based Polish Diaspora High School.

Wives of accredited ambassadors in Poland unveil little known secrets of their national cuisines. Teamed up with Miele, the German manufacturer of high-end domestic appliances, the Spouses of Heads of Mission Association is launching “What’s Cooking in Diplomacy” project. Held on 17 May, the meeting at Miele Experience Center in Warsaw’s district of Mokotów will be celebrating Japanese cuisine. Students of the “Klasyk” Polish Diaspora High School will be special guests of the event.

SHOM members and their guests will prepare several classic dishes of Japanese cuisine. Cooking workshops will be delivered by Yasuyuki Ikemoto, the chef at the Embassy of Japan. The meeting will be hosted by Kaori Matsutomi, the spouse of the Ambassador of Japan.

The goal of the meeting is not only to cook together, but also to promote the Japanese culture in Poland. Known for its charity campaigns in Poland, the SHOM Association is inviting students of the Polish Diaspora High School in Warsaw to the event. The school provides education to students with Polish roots, mainly from the former USSR republics, who are preparing for A-levels and taking up higher education in Poland. After the workshops, the dorm used by students of the school will benefit from very useful Miele appliances.
