Utolsó módosítás: 2019. április 05.

Food tasting, singing and dance performances. The foreign students of the campuses of Gyöngyös and Eger could celebrated their different cultures at the Global Cooking Night. This program has a long tradition in the county seat, but this year was the first time that the event was hosted at the Gyöngyös campus.

The imaginary gastro world tour started a few years ago in Eger. In the begining foreign students studying in Hungary, cooked in the dormitory for each other. They wanted to show the specialties of their nation. This initiative soon grew. Today the Global Cooking Night is one of the biggest events of Eszterházy Károly University.

This year the Károly Róbert Campus organized this event for the first time. The students studying in Gyöngyös represented almost 40 different countries and at the food presentation we tasted the cuisine of 12 different nations. Some of them prepared only dessert, other nations also cooked main courses and made side dishes.

Participating groups
- Ghana
- Jordan
- Palestine
- Cambodia
- Laos
- Hungary
- Mongolia
- Russia
- Portugal
- Romania
- Turkey
- Ukraine

Groups collected the votes of the audience and the jury. The Jordanian-Palestine team received the most votes from the students and the teachers. The jury's favourite was the Cambodian menu.

In recent years the Global Cooking Night has become a cultural event. The international members of the Ká-Ró Theatrical Group performed songs, and the students from Laos showed the dances of their nation.
