Here’s how it works:

• Cook a dish or dessert from your home country, or a country of your choice (cooking in pairs is also encouraged). Make sure you make enough to share around
• Write your name(s), the name of your dish, all ingredients you used (for allergy/religious reasons) and the country of origin of your dish on a piece of paper to take with you
• Take it with you to the Wild Lime on Saturday 2nd December at 7pm
• Put it on the buffet
